  • I'm not sure. Mine are 8 and 10 (almost 11). I've always drilled into them that non-believers are non-receivers. They have never told me that they don't believe in any of those so they either still believe or they are just going along to get the swag. I've never really been able to make sense of the Easter bunny. I have always been a skeptic and stopped believing early on. My parents never really perpetuated the Santa story though.

  • My oldest DD was going into middle school when we told her, she truly believed til them. My middle DD was about 8 and my son never did.. His way of thinking just wouldn't allow it, even at a young age lol...

  • No clue if DS believes or not. I have never made a big deal of it. He will get Santa presents until I die, believing or not. We don't do the Easter Bunny. The tooth fairy, don't think he has ever really believed in it, but he gets money regardless.

  • I'm not entirely sure my son believes, he's 5. When he was born I debated even doing it but went with it just for the sake of giving him those memories. However, the Christmases he was 3 and 4 whenever I'd mention Santa bringing toys he'd look at me and say "Mom, you buy my toys from Walmart!". This year he has said a couple times that he wants Santa to bring this and that so maybe he does but I still think he's skeptical lol. He's a very logical child.
