I dont think I did or at least as far as I can remember I did for only a very short time. Santa does not have a huge part in my tradition as it is but we still have him (he used to bring us presents for new year and that was usually at our parents work place or school). One year someone made me belive in Santa that he would bring me presents during the night and that year (as the tree was in my room) I woke up to see my father puting something under the tree and theat was it I no longer belived he brings presents. My son who is 5 years old decided to belive in Santa this year (he didnt care where presents came from as long as he got lots up untill this year). So now I am loving it as I can use Santa to "bribe" him. Be good or santa wont bring you anything, you want what??? oh you better ask Santa to get it for you. I am loving it. Did you belive in Santa? Whe did you start and when did you stop beliving? Do your children belive in him?

I believed in santa but i don't remember how old i was when i stopped believing. i do remember that i had to pretend i still believed for my little sister till she stopped believing. our kids are 6, 3 and 1 so they all still believe in santa. although obviously the 1 year old has no idea what is going on. i'm going to let them go till they decide they don't believe any more. i think it makes christmas more fun for all of us.
