My mother told me at 3 years old because of her religious fanaticism. There was no childlike sense of wonder for me.

I never believed in Santa Claus, but I remember being about 4 and pretending to believe in Santa because I could tell my parents had a lot emotionally invested in the lie.

I do believe the Tick had some important views on the topic.

When i noticed a different pattern around Christmas and looked in the outside toilet where parents had hid them, hence the follow up of my interrogation at about 11! lol
But i sort of realized a little earlier as i couldn't logically work out how he managed to visit almost every house on the planet in few hours and spend time eating all the pies! lol, then add GMT where some countries are a day ahead, it all didn't make sense! lol

Not really sure, but I remember one Christmas when I was around 4-5 years old. My father had dressed up as Santa, and I recognized him under the costume. That may have at least been the start of it. :P

I also never quite believed in Santa. My parents and relatives tried to push the concept onto me when I was little, but nothing about it ever made sense to me. :?
