As a kid, I always assumed it was to replace the presents their parents couldn't afford to get them.
Never really thought they were from Santa for those kids.
interesting. Santa for us is like part of the Xmas decorations, we never told our kids that he gives the presents. The presents are from us, or family. Maybe you could say that your kids are helping Santa and he’ll still deliver them.
In our house only 1 gift is from santa. I tell my kids Those wishing trees are so the kids can have extra
In our house, Father Christmas fills the stockings, we put the presents under the tree...we always take the kids to put presents under the wishing tree for children whose parents can't afford to buy them, it's a great way to help kids think of others. Might be trickier if everything in your home comes from Santa though
