Should Santa Come to Dad’s?

I want to throw this one out there for your consideration.

I know a lot of fathers have a hard time making ends meet. Getting to see the kids on the weekends is an expensive deal. The kids have to have all sorts of things at both places. Entertaining the kids also eats up whatever money hasn’t been paid to their mother via child support. So what is a dad to do?

Should Santa come to dad’s house too? I’m only asking because I know a few people going through this for the first time this season. Money is tight for a lot of people right now. So is it okay just to have a small Christmas with your kids where all the gifts are from dad? Or should there be a gift from Santa in the mix as well?

There aren’t going to be many gifts under the tree this year. I expect it will be that way in a lot of households. But I believe in the power of Christmas. It’s an important time for every child.

This is a delicate issue. Please weigh in and let me know what you think.

  1. I’m all for the idea that Santa comes to one household per kid. If he comes to Mommy’s then he doesn’t visit Daddy’s too. This will seem like good logic to a kid, and should be accepted. S
