  • I was around 8-9 not too sure, but I didn't tell my parents until I was older.

    Now a days kids in kindergarten no, but you have to make your kids believe.

    There is a Santa, and you are Santa.

  • mm I was in 3rd or 4th grade. My mom wasnt the greatest, and one year I guess she was just done and brought out all of our "santa" gifts in the grocery bag they came in.

  • There is NOT a SANTA?????
    I was actually around 11 or so. The "spirit" of Christmas is still alive in me!!!
    I celebrate it as Jesus' birthday and Santa helps bring Christmas Spirit to others less fortunate in financial or spiritual ways.
    I have always hung onto this and no matter how bad finances are or how good, something spiritual ALWAYS happens!

  • My kids never, never asked me for the truth. They just played along with us for the longest because Whisper they knew they would be more toys from Santa then us parents.  lol
