  • I am not certain, but I think around 9 (my cousin busted the dream) HO HUM - BUT..... because I really believe in the spirit (my kids) always have to admit there is a "Santa Clause" or NO Santa gift for you! LOL it has kept the spirit glowing in my home for 25 years (just ask my dd who is 25 and says every year) "I do believe I do I do" LOLsanta blue

  • I was 6 or 7. I saw a big wrap present on my parents bed when I woke up from a nightmare and I went to go look for them. The next day the present was from Santa. I think i=I even blew the whistle for my 2 older brothers and my little brother that day

  • 4 or 5 I saw my parents putting the gifts under the tree. I never said anything, it became a fun game. I learn that we are Santas Helpers.

  • My parents weren't only kill-joys by never "allowing" us to believe in Santa, but took it to the extreme and forbade anything Santa Clause in the home including any cards we received in the mail. I think that it is important for kids to develop their imagination. So many kids these days are constantly on the Xbox, PS2 & 3, etc. If it doesn't plug into the wall or take batteries - they have no idea what to do. It's really quite sad.

  • I was actually older. I think I knew and didn't want to know so I didn't ask. Plus I had younger brother and sisters so it was fun to believe, When I was 12 I wanted something expensive and my parents said..we will get it for you although know the younger kids are going to get more gifts than you. I was okay because that is what I wanted.
