Do your kids believe in Santa Claus?

Do your kids believe in Santa Claus?

What age did you stop believing in Santa Claus? When did your kids stop?

I remember figuring it all out and catching my mom when I was about 10 years old. I think I was one of the last of my friends to find out Santa wasn't real. I kept up the myth for my younger siblings for years.

    Yes my kids do. We all do actually, my sister in law doesn't have much money and somehow every year without anyone being told what the kids want the bigger things they wanted xboxes and tablets and things like that end up on the back porch all wrapped up and labeled for them individually. Mind you we don't even know anyone who can afford the crazy stuff they get so there must be some sort of Santa claus or else there's a crazy stalking my nieces and nephews

      I stopped at five when my mother could not answer my constant questions about Santa Claus. And then staying up at night to "prove my hypothesis." Lol

      My daughter believes in Santa still, since her mind set is a bit younger in some areas. My son is still too little. We still celebrate it the Christian way, we just like them to enjoy the magic, wonder, and childhood joy from believing in Santa.

        When I was a kid, my great uncle would send us half dollars or two dollar bills signed 'santa'. He was also the Santa in the town he lived in for many years until he passed.. We knew Santa wasn't real-but it was always fun guessing who it was until we found out (the handwriting changed, my grandpa had tried to keep up the tradition).
        My oldest believes in Santa, but my youngers do not. In fact, my four year old had a discussion with the mall Santa about the real meaning of Christmas and him pretending to be Santa. It was kinda cute.

          In my family my parents always said if you don't believe in Santa you wont have any Christmas presents on Christmas morning. As I got a little older around 4th grade she would tell me you have to have Christmas spirit. My sisters are 8 and 6 years younger then them so I always had that Christmas spirit and magical morning when Santa came. In 4th grade a lot of my friends didn't believe in Santa but I just remembered what my parents had told me. When I was in 5th grade my mom asked me to help wrap my sisters gifts and I said why does this tag say from Santa and she replied by saying oh I thought you knew. It was a very sad day. But from then I still have that Christmas magic and believe there is a Santa in all of us. My son is just 13 months old and I am so excited about Christmas this year. I know he still his young but I took him to see Santa the other day and he was in awe of Santa. Just smiling and was feeling his beard. Made me so happy that my son was experiencing what I had as a child.

            My oldest found out from her dad when she was 7..My youngest is 9 and she still believes..When my oldest found out she didn't tell me for a while. She wanted me to think she still believed..Now she helps me with shopping and wrapping for a lot of her sisters presents. My sister thinks it's wrong for me to let my oldest help. But my daughter seems to enjoy helping..I hope I don't ruin Christmas for her by letting her help
