Santa Clause

So is it wrong to let your children believe in Jolly Old St Nick?

Recently a discussion was brought up about the use of characters such as Santa Clause. Many Christians believe that such fictitious individuals cause children to lose the true meaning of the holiday season.
So I have to ask, does using the idea of Santa cause problems for children or does it help to develop a deeper understanding of Human love and compassion for others. Didn’t even God send the gift of his only begotten son so that the whosoevers can be forgiven? Doesn’t the giving of gifts help to reinforce the true gift? And the character Santa represents a man providing joy and happiness in the world for people who don’t have much.
I don’t know, but I don’t think Santa really hurts anyone.
