The Tiktoker and mom of 2 recently shared a video explaining that all the gifts her children get from ‘Santa’ are bought from the dollar store…

Explaining that she doesn’t want the big guy getting credit for the more expensive presents. She shared in her, now-viral, video: “I’ve just been to the pound shop to get some bits for the kids’ stockings. I say stockings, I always just do them a gift bag. 

“This is what Father Christmas brings because he’s not getting the credit for the big presents.”

The clip quickly garnered 1.5 million views and ruffled a few feathers. However, some people think that the mom is totally justified in her reasoning and that parents should get the credit for the larger presents on Christmas Day.

It’s safe to say there has been mixed reactions on the topic…

“I’m not letting santa take the credit….. wtaf? Because when they are old enough to know they will know who did it all! I’ll take the believing in magic and the pure happiness of believing in something for such a short time over credit any day of the week!!” said one infuriated parent…

Another wrote: “Santa had all the credit until my kids turned to teens and then knew the truth! The magical glow on their faces was worth it all, even now they’re teens although they know me and dad get the gifts they’re still signed from Santa.”

However, many agreed with this mom’s way of thinking, even sharing their own Christmas gift policies…

“Santa brings one special present every Yr. This Yr my son asked for walkie-talkies. Nothing really expensive. Then if he has been a gd boy Santa brings his special present.

“Trying to teach him Santa only brings 1 special present and then mummy and daddy buy him all the rest. We work hard all Yr to afford all these presents we want some credit,” a third parent shared.

It’s clear to see that most parents prefer to keep the magic of Christmas alive, even if that means not getting the credit for the more expensive gifts…

However, some have also suggested the mom’s way helps those less fortunate not to feel excluded, as one parent explained: “I think the cheaper presents should be from Santa but big presents like Play Stations and Bikes should be from parents.

“That little boy who asked Santa for a bike who didn’t get one but his pal did, makes him feel Santa doesn’t like him or he’s been naughty when the truth is his parents didn’t have the money.”

What do you think, should Santa get the credit?
