Probably 9 or 10, the whole idea and where the presents came from weren't making sense...

I think the year that I ended up not being able to sleep all night, and I found nor heard absolutly no evidence of santa, man that night felt like an eternity. I tried to stay silent about it, and continue the illusion that I still belived, I think I kind of understood why others wanted kids to belive in him.

The Santa Pause topic

I suppose I always believed, even when told finally there was no actual Santa. (I pulled the guy's beard when I was four during an Eaton's Store visit. I had a suspicion that old St Nick was phony after that for sure when I saw him in more than one place within a short period of time. My mother told me these store Santas were the old guy's helpers. :P )

At any rate, the spirit of Santa is alive and well. It is the spirit of giving, and we can stretch it over the whole year.

I never believed. It was illogical.

Same here, it was obviously a made up story just like all the fairy tales I was told.

I never believed in Santa as my parents actually told me the truth. I found it quite amusing that some children in the same year group as me actually believed in Santa.

I was heartbroken at age ten when I realized I had seen the package Santa left for me, earlier in the trunk of the car.

I don't remember when I stopped believing. Is this the kind of thing that is a childhood milestone?

I don't ever remember believing in Santa, but I once stayed up all night to debunk the Tooth Fairy hoax.

I was told stories of the Christ Child rather than of Santa, though I can't remember ever believing in it either.

It didn't matter to me whether this figure existed or not, I never asked nor bothered to find out, but I liked how the tales sounded.

I remember that they were a source of great amusement to me when I was 4.

They never told me there was a Santa... :wink:

The "Christ Child" thing never worked out for me, all the things I wished for existed in my fantasy only... So nobody could give me them for a gift.

In second grade. I remember exactly when I found out that there was no Santa: my friends and I were heading into school after recess when one of them brought up the topic. My best friend then spilled the beans about there being no Santa. My reaction was, "Well, I didn't know that, but I suppose I can live with it," I said to myself. Mild surprise, but immediate acceptance.
