Although I had it figured out by age 10 or so, I still 'forced' myself to believe until I was 11 or 12.

I remember asking my grandmother (who raised me from the time I was 2 months old) if Santa was real, and she answered, "As long as you believe."

How about you?

Here is to always believing ...

As soon as I walked into a storage closet we had in an old house and saw a bunch of games I wanted. Then I asked my mom who they were for (he response: your cousins). I then unwrapped them on Xmas sure enough same games. Also my mom would write To:Ryan From: ? or To: Ryan From: Santa on a card, but 'Santa's' writing looked exactly like my moms (she had distinct hand writing). Oh well

 rotfl  I can't help feeling sorry for you, really... that is SUCH a sad scene!!! Big grin

I stopped believing when he didn't want the bloody cookies I made for him and put outside  grumpy - Seeing how I cook today, I'm not surprised though  Silly

I complained to my mom that he hadn't eaten my cookies and we had a looong talk... I was devastated for a year or two  Wink

After my 5-year old daughter came and woke me up at 4:00 am to tell me that Santa had come to our house, and I saw the magic of Christmas in her eyes again, I'll never stop believing.
Merry Christmas.

I just sorta realized it when I was 7 or 8. But my sister has probably the best story to tell. One year she wrote a letter to santa, and gave it to the postman. She purposely made sure my parents couldn't see it so that she would find out if she really got what she asked for. All the letters "for santa" went to the local high school where the students would write the kids back. My Dad drove over to the school and got the letter from the school so my sister would still believe in him, if just for another year.  Silly

I don't know exactly, perhaps when I was 10 or so. I promptly told my 6 year old sister. She didn't believe me, and my Mom chewed my ass. . .  Wow!

Never have; never will. Santa may not be a person, but to me he represents the spirit of giving in Christmas, and as long as I have that spirit, I will always believe in Santa.

Back in grade 5 or 6 we had to do this for the kindergarten class. My teacher told the whole class that Santa doesn't exist, and there were a few of us that weren't too happy with this. I kind of had a feeling before that, but that did it for me. I don't think she had any right to just tell us straight out like that though...

LOL. Here in Mexico (as most Latin countries) we have the tradition of the Three Wise Men or Magi bringing toys to children on the Epiphany (January 6th).

When I was ten years old I was aware that the Magi weren't other than my parents, yet I still was getting presents on that day and I pretended that I still believed on them. One evening, just days before January 6th, I was in a car with my grandmother and an aunt. We were coming back to home after shopping and suddenly, out of the blue, my grandma stared at me and asked me: "you know who the Magi really are, don't you". I was speechless (I was only ten) and I was starting to say something like "they are my parents, I know" when my aunt said to her: "of course he knows, he is not dumb. He knows that they are Melchor, Gaspar and Baltazar (the Spanish names of the Three Wise Men)". My grandma looked at her and didn't insist on getting an answer from me. She saved me of acknowledging in front of my grandmother that my childhood was getting to an end.

Thanks aunt Monica! Now that you are not longer with us, this little story reminds me of how special you were.

I can't remember when I stopped believing in him, but I remembered this quote when I saw the thread:

"I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store, and he asked for my autograph." - Shirley Temple.

I never believed in Santa to begin with. And I can say it was great because I was never let down.

I was 8... I just got wise on how some fat dude got into our house when the doors were locked... and if I was able to see him at the freakin mall, how come I had to be asleep when he came to my house. (We didn't have a chimney, and even if we did, I would purposely have closed the flue)

I know, I'm a scrooge.. But when you spend Christmas alone, thats what happens to ya.
