2s and 3s are a bit young for this, but we're getting to where we're talking about Santa now. How do you talk about Santa, and keep the legend alive?

We talk about Santa a bit, and read books with him in it. We've always had our children write a letter to Santa and we take an annual visit to see him. We also do fun things like leaving food outside on the yard for the reindeer and leave cookies and milk out for Santa (and of course there are a few half-eaten ones on the plate for them to find in the morning). Their gifts from Santa are wrapped in special wrapping paper too. Fun little things that make the season a little more special.
