Do you let your kids write to Santa?
Do you think that we definitely shouldn't?
Do you think that 'Santa' creates greed?
I don't see it that way at all.
It's not the asking that's a problem
It's the providing it all and more
It's not the kids or Santa to blame
Santa lists can be a learning tool
Kids can learn about writing letters
Kids can think about what they might like
Kids then realise not everything's possible
They can decide if they really want that bike
You can talk about Santa's budget
Talk about waiting for things
Talk about kids who have nothing
Do they really want everything?
Santa is not the problem
Santa doesn't create greed
Santa allows conversations about money
Ask Santa and see what you receive
This year for the second year running
Rachel has not asked for much
She writes and asks Santa to help others
See how Santa helps kids learn about stuff
Rachel's letter 2012:
I can't think of anything I want.
Please give presents to Gloria
And other poor children.
(Gloria is the child we sponsor in Zambia).
