I am not interested in hearing from those who do not celebrate Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, etc. We do "believe" in them in our household and have great fun with it. I only raise this question because my son will be turning 11 in a couple of months and even though he says and acts like he still believes, I have a feeling it is just an act. I have always told my kids when they questioned me in the past, that "to recieve you have to believe". I am afraid that if I sit down and explain it to him, he will immediately run and tell my 7 year old daughter and possibly spill the beans as my youngest grows us also. I know most of his friends tell him that they are not real and I really don't want him being ridiculed in the future. How old were your kids when you told them and how did you break the news?
