  • I think I was 8 or so. I knew it was Mom and Dad instead of Santa.

  • I was like 10 or 11.

    My kids are still young but that seems to be a good average from what Ive seen people say.

  • I know that mom and dad help but I still believe and I am 26. Maybe it sounds stupid but there was one x-mas (I slept by the tree EVERY x-mas) when I looked at my watch, closed my eyes then opened them 3 minutes later (remember I looked at my watch!). I looked at the tree and there was about 10 extra gifts around. Unless my parents are super sneaky and could tell the exact moment I closed my eyes, I BELIEVE!

  • I'm 32, and I still believe. I can't read "The Polar Express" without getting choked up. I hope my kids never stop believing in Santa.

  • I think I was 9. My children were younger because we attended church where they didn't believe in lying to the kids about Santa so some other kids their age kept telling them the truth. My daughter plans on making sure my granddaughter never 'believes' in Santa, but enjoys the songs and stories - just knows of Santa as a myth.
