Well, then, that explains why he has been forgetting me:-) I do not remember how old I was, but it was my older brother that crushed my childhood fantasy. Then there was the year that I asked for a stereo...and "Santa" gave me the same older brothers used stereo. LOL.

I knew when I was about 8.  I figured it out myself  I thought to myself what kind of a BS story is this where this guy can make it to every child's house in the world in only one night, lol..   My sisters did not figure it out and my parents told them when they were around 5th grade or so, maybe a little younger.   They cried a lot.   My dd cried when I told her as well.   She was 9.

I was 9 or 10. I saw a box from a "Santa" present in the garage trash. 

Understanding was quick and complete. I didn't ever say anything, and I wasn't upset. It just made sense, since I was old enough.

As an only child back in the 70s, it was much easier to believe longer. Kids these days are arguing about it from 2nd grade on at least, very often before school.

I think about 10 and I guess it wasn't too rough on me because I don't remember how I found out. How about you?
