I have explained to my daughter about the story of Santa Claus and Jesus' birth and I think she understands that gifts she receives at Christmas are representative of the gifts given to baby Jesus, and are not from Santa Claus. I've also tried to explain to her that other children may have been told their gifts are from Santa Claus, so we should not tell them otherwise as that is their parents' decision. I don't know if she "gets" all of this, but I do try to give her as much information as I can. I like for there to be enough presents under the tree to cover most of the tree skirt, so I try to hold back on purchases I've made for things she needs at the end of the year so that I can wrap them and put them under the tree too - like socks, undergarments, cute drinking cups -- basic stuff wrapped in pretty Christmas paper. Last year she got 3 cardigans and I wrapped each of them individually. She laughed when she got to the third box of yet another cardigan.
