Should I lie to my three year old daughter about Santa Claus?

As a child, my wife and I were both taught that Santa "sees you when you are sleeping, knows when you are awake!' In addition, the santa mythologoy included the most bizzare cruelty of all... if you weren't a good child, Snata would actually go out of his way to put coal into your stocking.
Here's the question.... I want to be honest with my children, and I think this is a silly lie to perpetuate. We are not particularly religous... I consider myself agnostic and my wife spirtutal but not religous.
