What age did you find out that santa claus isn't real. How did it happen? And when do you think parents should tell their kids that he isn't real? I forgot at what age I found out, but I remember how I did and it is funny now. I was getting my shoes out of my moms car, and I saw a bunch of grocery store bags, so I looked inside. I saw this barbie that I had wanted for a long time, so I was really excited. But on Christmas day I opened a present that was from: Santa, and it was the barbie doll....I was very confused and bummed out! But it is FUNNY now! =)

A similar thing happened to me. I found all of my presents under my parents bed. You would think they would find a better place to hide them. I wasn't looking for them. I dropped something and leaned down to get it. But for years after still pretending I believed! ;)

I can't remember my exact age when I found out that there was no santa claus. I think I must have been about eleven years old. I often used to help my mum cleaning the house and once when I was in her bedroom, I went to put some shoes into her wardrobe and discovered it was locked. As soon as I got the opportunity, I got a hair clip and picked the lock on the wardrobe and found all our Christmas toys. I was delighted to be able to show my new found treasures to my brother and sister. Of course, they already knew that there was no santa so I didn't really spoil their Christmas.
