Never did believe in Santa. My parents basically taught us the real meaning of Christmas -- Christ's B-day, and that is what we celebrated and still celebrate. I'm glad though, that they didn't try teaching us about some strange man who gives free gifts, but instead taught us that God gives and blesses and we celebrate his Birth.
Santa wasn't really a thing here. My parents didn't say "Oh! Kids, look Santa bought you toys." They bought us Christmas gifts. And we teach our kids what Christmas really is too, so that they don't get caught up thinking it's something that it isn't -- something about taking, taking, taking and not giving, celebrating who gives life to us.
