I particularly loved Santa, or the essence of Santa. His spirit and jolly demeanor, well, everything about him. Unfortunately, my son doesn't share my love of the fat elf. As an adult, he believes the lie of Santa is an unfair thing to put upon a child. I thought he might change when he had his own children, but it's been more of a compromise than a change. This is how our compromise works.

On Christmas Day, we travel a couple of hours for traditional celebrations with my mom. My son and family will be there too. They then go on to her parents' home for more traditional celebrations of Christmas.
Our multi-tradition Christmas/Solstice celebrations has been wonderful for me - the season lasts even longer!
