I admit that I believed that Santa Claus exested when I was a kid. Until one day I saw a 500 peso bill at my sock which I put under the christmas tree. I really can't believe that Santa is giving away money and not gifts so the next year I started to heve a plan. I didn't told anyone but my mom about my wished item. As far as I remember, I wished for a magnet. That is difficult to guess and thought Santa will not guess it. I recieved my gift and the only suspect that came out is my mom. That is the end of my belief with Santa but I enjoyed it :D How about you, how did you discovered that Santa Claus didn't exist?

I discovered there was no Santa Clause when one year I couldn't sleep so I got up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. I heard noises and thought it might be Santa, so I went to investigate to find my parents stuffing our stockings and putting the gifts from "Santa" under the tree. I wasn't upset, it just made me love my parents more. Now they get credit for all the awesome stuff they gave me over the years, although I never did get that pony..

Yah that is how it should be loving your parents more and I also thought that they will stop giving gifts every christmas if I tell them that I know that there is no santa and the santa I know are my parents :D

I wish I could remember exactly how I found out. I think it was from kids in school telling me. However when I confronted my parents about it and found out there really wasn't I was quite upset with my parents. I remember saying "you lied to me". Here I was thinking it was a magical time and all so beautiful and it was all our parents doing. The funny thing is we then go on to do the same to our kids and so on and so on.

You mean Santa doesn't exist????? Are you sure???? It's been a long time ago. I started to question when we were shopping and there were two different Santas at two different stores.

I don't remember when I found out there was no santa exactly. I think I heard kids talking at school. Plus I was starting to see that the writing from santa was the same as my dads writing and the price stickers came from the store that my mom was working at at the time. I asked my mom about it and she told me there was no santa but that I had to keep pretending for my younger sister. I didn't mind finding out because it was fun while it lasted.

Hi! Actually there is Santa, but he doesn't carry gifts all over the world.So I discovered that not Santa, but my parents bring the gifts under the Christmas tree, when I found my toy fro Christmas, a jet-fighter, behind the door in on of the rooms at home. That's how I discovered it!

When I was a child no one ever told to me that a fat old man called 'Santa Clause' who lives in the North Pole. No one told me that he he rides a reindeer and delivers gifts to children who are good. I only came to know about the imaginary Santa Claus through movies and serials. hohoho

What do you mean, there is no Santa?!?!?![i][/i] Haha I actually asked my mom about this the other day. One of my sorority sister has a five year old daughter and she was wondering when it was appropriate to tell the little girl "about Santa." I told her not to, that she'd figure out on her own, and that most kids figure it out but don't tell their parents that they know to try to keep the magic alive. But it got me wondering, because I honestly can't remember, when I learned "the truth." Mom didn't remember either but she was relatively certain that she wasn't the one who told me and she didn't think my dad did either.

my first time was when I was eight, I lived in Bronx, new york. It was during December and in the Bronx if it snows its no more then three inches or so. me and my brother went out to play with the little snow there was. remembered it was really soft and it melted really fast. this little boy who was maybe a few years older then me, came up to me and my brother and told us there is no Santa Claus cause he seen his parents putting his presents under the tree. well just figured he was right and sure enough he was right.

When I was a child I went to a religious school that taught us a lot about God. They taught us some other things, but I later found out they were not in the Holy Bible. Anyhow, when being taught about God, we were told that God, and only God saw and knew everything. That ran through my little head after a while as I thought about how some said Santa knew everything we did. I then figured only God could be the right answer. That was kind of a good thing to go through.
