I think Jason was about ten. I tried one more year, to have him believe, so I hid his presents and wrote clues that rhymed. He would have to do things like hop up and down, and pat his head, stuff like that. It took him until the next year, to get over it.

With my first 2 I tried to pretend but they wondered why the presents from Santa were in the same paper as the presents from me, lol.  

With our last we pretty much told her it was a fairy tale from the beginning.

Our daughters would never never never never give up the opportunity to shake hubby and me down, so they refuse to believe there is NO SANTA!

I'm sorry, but there is a Santa. I don't know who lied to you and told you differently. 

In my house, if you don't believe in Santa, you do NOT get Christmas gifts. Period.

We never presented Santa as real, just a myth.

I can't remeber with the older three, Andrew was around 13. They all handled it well.

My kids knew before they first admitted it to me. I could tell by the questions they would ask. 

Anna is 11 and found out around ten about the Easter Bunny when Don bought some Easter candy and wasn't very sly about it. He talked to her about it in the store aisle, poor kid! She started to cry and had tears in her eyes and he was hugging her. It didn't take her long to get over. She has friends that don't celebrate that way but they never said these icons weren't real. They just matter of factly stated it. She has not not come right out and said there is no Santa.

I don't think they want to because they are afraid they might not get anything!

She still put teeth under her pillow for the Tooth Fairy, too. I am sure she knows about all of them and just doesn't want to talk about it. She has come very close but hasn't yet. All in her own time!
