We played pretend Santa with our kids. They are old enough to know now. But we did talk about how it was mean to tell other kids about it.

When I was little, we didn't do Santa, and I had NO CLUE that anyone actually seriously believed in Santa. So I was the mean one (not on purpose) that, totally without any tact at all, told everyone that it wasn't real. I have felt awful for years that I did that.

As far as the God thing, I'm atheist. We tell our kids that all sorts of people believe all sorts of different things. Everyone has a right to their beliefs and we shouldn't tell people that what they believe isn't true. It's just not nice.
