I am not a Christian so we were not brought up with Santa Claus or Xmas.

So even though I knew all about it from school friends, I probably never really did believe in it.

I took my children to see him though each year when they were little.

I celebrated Hanukha rather than Christmas,so this is a moot point with me!
I did take my son to see Santa though when he was little,but he never seemed to think he was real once he hit about 5 or 6 years old! My friends have always told me he was a wise old man in a small boy's body!
Having just read all that through,it almost sounds sad,but truly,it was anything but!!! I recall so much fun and laughter in my own upbringing,as well as the childhood years of my son,that Santa and Easter Bunny were definitely much loved characters,but in story books rather than in real life!!!
Around 12

OMG do you mean Santa Claus is not real! Horrors. By the way Santa Claus has nothing to do with Christianity. In all honesty I never really liked
the Santa Clauses that I met because they had fake beards and were super friendly when they were really strangers
OMG... I don't remember. It was well over 40 years ago.

I don't think I ever really believed he was real. We knew who gave us the presents we received.

I was 8 when I found out

At six years of age on Christmas day I asked my mom if Santa was real. I recognized the handwriting on the tag that said "To Damien From Santa" as my mom's.
that is so funny! What did she answer you?
by Finy
Obviously this was quite a long time ago, so I'm going to paraphrase a bit ;) The conversation went kind of like this:

Me: Is Santa Claus real?
Mom: No.
Me: I didn't think so. Thank for the extra gifts mom.
Mom: You're welcome, sweetie.
He's NOT?
LOL Shelley!

We were not exposed to the Santa culture when we were children as we did not live in the West.
I was 11 remember it as was the last one my
Parents were together
I would have been around 10-11, when I happened to wake up during the night of Xmas Eve, and saw mum creeping into the room,with the Santa sack full of gifts....but I didn't let on, as I have a sister 10 years younger, who was just a baby at this point.
What you mean he is a fake !!!!
Can't remember that far back!
I think I was around 11 or 12 years old. We've always celebrated santa, the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy. It's just magical seeing the looks on the childrens faces and one I wanted to celebrate until they were too old for it.
very young
I never believed in him from as long as I could remember, even when I was told about him...he made no sense to me, and still doesn't.

I Know what Christmas is all about.
We weren't allowed to believe in Santa Claus and I never did . . . . but I love Santa movies. LOL

I doon't remember to tell you the truth.
Mum told me the facts of life and Father Christmas when I was 10. I didn't understand the facts of life and so I was deeply shocked that she lied to me all those years about father Christmas and the fairies.
oh no at 70 years thought I had not been good enough!
now I guess I can be even naughtier
I was first told by my younger sister when I was 12. I was obviously a very sheltered and naive child lol
