Did you believe in Santa Claus when you were a kid?

When I was a kid, I believed in Santa Claus. I would write short letters to him and hang it on our Christmas tree. I would try to be good all the time. I ask for barbie dolls and dollhouses. I found out that He didn't really exist when I saw that my mom and dad were the ones who were giving me presents.

I did very much so believe in Santa Claus. I couldn't wait for the jolly man to come. I can still remember that feeling of joy from all those years ago. My older brother told me the truth about Santa on Christmas Eve when I was 6. I argued with him and went and asked my dad and mom. They told me the truth and I was devastated. I wish they had lied for one day anyway...LOL. Deep down I know Santa still exists. I get at least one gift from him every year.

When I grew up I did believe in Santa Claus, it wasnt until my dad left a note saying not to touch the presents until lunchtime. We sussed it was him as it was his handwriting. I think its nice for kids to believe in someone like Santa Claus, it make Christmas more exciting!!

When I was a kid, I really do believe that Santa Claus exist. My mom will always ask me of the gift that I would ask from Santa. Excitedly, I would tell my mom my wish. She said that Santa will surely give me the gift, because I am a good girl. Every time I am alone with the figurines, posters of Santa Claus that my mom is using for decoration... I would talk to Santa. And I will tell him every thing that I don in school. I always see to it that Santa would know that I am a good girl in class. So, on the Christmas eve I would get a sock...usually a Christmas decor sock hang it on our Christmas tree. And when I wake up I would see the present that Santa left. I believe that Santa really exist I think until I reach the age of 10. When I accidentally wake up and saw my mom putting a gift inside the sock... since our christmas tree is inside the bedroom. Because when I was young, I would always want to see the Christmas tree. Anyway, our Christmas tree is small and its fine putting it inside the bedroom. Now, my kids believe that Santa exist...I know someday like me... they will realize that Santa is just a childhood fantasy.

Oh yes, I did believe in Santa Claus. Every Christmas Eve, I would sit in front of the tree to make sure I don't miss him when he comes. I didn't doubt for a while back then that it was just my parents who put gifts, but I learnt that Santa Claus is just my parents when I received a gift from Santa that has my mom's handwriting in it. I guess my mom forgot to let others write the message in the card. Anyway, even if I knew Santa Claus doesn't exist, it didn't ruin my holiday spirit. I still love Christmas!

I never believed in Santa Claus, nor did my brothers and sisters. It is kind of ironic that while my parents never played the Santa game at Christmas my mother loves to collect anything having to do with Santa. I have never fully understood how she could be against and for Santa at the same time.

as far as i can remember we knew it was my parents who gave us the gifts. we respected them for it . it made the gifts more special to know how much effort, thought, money, time , was put into each gift. my kids know there is no santa. but yesterday my son asked me if leprechans were poison?
