Do your kids believe in Santa? If so, how do you keep the idea and magic of Santa alive for them? Any special traditions?

(Your answers may be used in a coming iVillage feature)

My oldest son is 12 and he stopped believing 2-3 years ago but he's been great about continuing to play along for his little brother, who is 8. I have a feeling we're nearing the end with him as well...sniff..

We do the usual "milk and cookies" gift for Santa on Christmas Eve and the past few years, the kids have made "reindeer food" at school to put out for Rudolph and the gang as well. :smileyhappy:

They've been questioning it a lot, but are still believing a little. I don't want the older ones ruining it for my youngest who is only 8. I've gotten prettyAt deflecting questions! I have them make a list, we put out milk and cookies, and I use separate wrapping paper/ computer printed tags for the Santa gifts.
