Well, I believe in the IDEA of Santa. I just wish, for everyone's sake, that it was still the same today as it was so many years ago. You get to make a list but Santa only brings one of the items you wish for. We were told to put our wishes in order of priority. Because, we were getting one, (and only one) of those gifts from Santa. Now, the wish list is so long that it is insane and sooooooooo commercial. My favourite gifts from Santa were the ones that HE MADE.
WHaaaat ? there is no Santa ??? oh my gush! I am going to cry now................................:)
Ah Virginia, bu there IS a Santa Clause!
8, but i rejected it <br />
out of hand <br />
as untrue<br />
it was just too <br />
i wasn't ready <br />
to give him up<br />
and made a<br />
conscious <br />
to keep him <br />
it was as much <br />
an act of faith<br />
as an act of love<br />
I was about four. I thought I was being sneaky. I snuck out of bed after my parents had gone to sleep and shut the door that separated the bedrooms from the rest of the house, and I knelt on the floor and peered through the ventilation grate. I was waiting for santa's big black boots to walk into my vision near the tree, which had a few presents by it already (my parents said it was a joint-gift deal they had with santa.) Three a.m., my dad wakes up to use the restroom and sees me zonked out on the floor in the hallway in his old air force shirt and wearing no socks despite the fact that it was 16 degrees outside and not much warmer inside. He carried me to bed, I slept in until midday, and got to open presents with the knowledge that Santa had gypped me of a good night's sleep.
my mom gave me a iou note for the thoothfairy when i was 7 i recogonized her handwriting then i doubted all the fairytale easter bunny santa crap:)
I have an open mind about Santa. I know there was a Santa that lived in Finland and delivered things to people.
What do you mean "there's no Santa". You're kidding yeah?
I was 9 years old
I like to think of these things being a good excitement, and something to look forward to. I believe in Santa!
so, by the time you become an adult you have to accept there is no santa, but your expected to believe in God? i call bullshit, there is no God, i found out there was no santa when i was 9, became and athiest when i was 13 (:
WHAT?!?!?!? No Santa??? That's a drag...
Well, if we're talking about the magical Santa, with the flying sleigh and elves, I never actually believed in it... it was just fun to pretend. If we're talking about St. Nicolaus, he was real; he was a real bishop, who was born in Turkey sometime around the third century or so. The Turkish government is fighting to keep his bones.
What? There's no Santa??????????? :)
I was about 10 but i didnt tell my family till i was 14. i had fun staying up late every christmas eve and listening to the caos that ensued dowstairs as they tried to get all of "santas" gifts wrapped and under the tree :)
6 yrs old
I was 9, I think. A mean classmate ruined it for me. Thanks, J, really. Enemy of sweet delusion and childhood fantasy. A lump of coal for you this year it is. :)
I was about 8. I found a price tag on one of my gifts. lol
I actually believed in him until I was about 9 . Then one day I just thought it through logically - can there really be a man who flies in a magic sledge pulled by flying deer that delivers presents??<br />
I asked my mum just to be sure and she said no. <br />
I am the eldest child in the family though, so had no older siblings to find out from, and even when I started to sort-of not believe, I pretended for the benefit of my younger siblings.
