So, what age were you when you realized that there was no tooth fairy, easter bunny, santa claus. Did you figure it out yourself, or did someone tell you? And if you have a younger sibling, did you have to keep the SECRET quiet?
I feel woozy....what did you put in that Pudding Pop?

I was once told to NEVER stop believing in the tooth fairy, Easter Bunny and Santa Claus! Always keep a little bit of the little kid in you and always nurture that little kid!

When I was six years old, in first grade, I figured out that Santa Claus didn't exist (why I came to that conclusion, I no longer remember). I immediately went and told all the other kids in my class that Santa wasn't real. The teacher, and the other kids' parents, were not amused.

I don't care too much for the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy, but I will ALWAYS believe in Santa Claus, until the day I die. MAybe Santa isn't a real person, but he's the spirit of giving that, along with the true meaning of Christmas, makes it such a joyous day. Give that up. Never.

I only learned of this when told by Mohammed Saheed al-Sahaf.
"There is no Santa Claus! It is our beloved Saddam Hussein, his name be praised, who delivers gifts to the good boys and girls of the world. The infidels will have you believe their children get such presents, when in fact, it is only those of Islamic faith who receive them. The children of the infidels receive coal and dirt as black as their hearts!"
