When did you stop believing in Santa Claus?

Well last night i was helping my mom wrap presents(she has arthritis, doing so herself is painfull, so iv been doing it for her since i was eight) when i started thinking about my little brother (who is eight) and when he might stop believing in Santa Claus.

I was six when i stopped believing, my mom was seven when she stopped, and my sister made to twelve before she found out (her stupid friends told her, and made fun of her for believing so long )

Needless to say i got pissed and the next day i got in trouble for fighting. note: me and my sister are only 18 months apart, so the kid i beat up was in a grade below mine (i was in 8th, he was in 7th), not so much younger so it wasnt as bad as it sounded ^_^.

Anywayz, I hope my brother believes 4 a looonng time to come, cuz if some little friend of his tells him i cant exactly beat the shit out of him, now can i?

Anywayz, I was wandering when other people stopped believing in Santa Claus? Its interesting to think about...

I stopped believing in Santa Claus when my parents became very religious which was around the age of 10. I wish at times I still believed in Santa because it is such an innocent belief to me.
I helped my best friend wrap gifts that she has hidden at my house for her 11 year old son who still believes in Santa Claus. He did come home from school the other day and asked her if Santa was real because people at school were saying he isn't. She said that if Santa isn't real then all your gifts are under the tree because your dad and I aren't buying you anymore and the other reason that those children don't believe in Santa is because they are bad and didn't get any gifts from Santa and if you stop believing you will not get any gifts from him anymore. She has a son who is 12 who doesn't believe in Santa anymore and he stood right there and say that she was right just to keep up the idea of Santa in an innocent mind. : )
This idea of a child still believing in Santa gives me hope that there is innocent in the world.

I can't say exactly when, either...The notion of Santa as a real person, I think, just kind of tranformed into the ideal of Santa. As I got older, no longer was it the jolly old fat man dropping presents under the tree...he became the spirit of giving and compassion. That warm feeling you get when you watch your child, or any loved one for that matter, see the tree lit for the first time, or as they tear open a present...that's Santa. So in a sense, I guess I really never stopped believing after all!

Kinda like frell, I don't think I have stopped believing in the spirit of Santa. As long as one kid still believes then he is as real as ever. Merry Christmas, kid, hope Santa was good to you. lol

When did I stop believing in Santa Claus? You know.. I don't think I ever did believe in him..and when my Mom and Dad too me to sit in his lap..I just screamed! "Big Scarey Dude" is what I was thinking.
However...I believed in the tooth fairey forever...the Easter Bunny..and yes, I still believe in the Great Pumpkin!

Ephemeral1025: many people still wish they believed in Santa. I, however am not one of them. I like knowing Santa Clause isnt real but having all these Santa gimicks around christmas time. The effort people put into keeping this innocent belief in children is done with such entusiasm that it shows there is more hope in the future than we believe; it's a comfortable thought. Of course, seeing little kids getting all excited cuz Santa is coming is worth all the effort put into christmas and then some ^_^!!!

HOTNBOTHERED0414: try asking your parents or relatives, maybe they remember ^_^ My Mom told me when I stopped believing every year when I help her wrap presents ^_^ its nice looking back... Even if you cant remember exactly when you stopped believing I hope you havnt forgotten what it was like believing in Santa Clause ^_^

vuderhose: cute... ^_^

frell1975: Wow, great explanation, I can see what your getting at, I can relate to it too. even though i stopped believing alot more abruptly, as soon as I did, I transferred the belief of Santa into the spirit of christmas. ^_^

kyplowboy22: yep, Santa was real good!!!! ^_^ Ill be sure to continue checking out your blog ^_^!!

tillerbabe: Wow, im surprised and greatly pleased you checked out my blog!! ^_^ Oh and you can count on me checking out your blogs regularly too, I love childhood stories, and your really good at telling them!! oh and alot of little kids are afraid to sit in Santa's lap, whether or not they believe in him ^_^ I was one of them, I justed wanted the presents and the candycane, so i put up with it ^_^ I, like you, believed in the other holiday characters like Eater Bunny and Tooth Fairy, for quite a while more. i think its more because of circumstance than whether or not we are still innocent enough to believe. And any true charlie brown fan is a firm, devoted believer in the Great Pumpkin!!!

lol Later Dayz Everyone!! Thankyou for your thoughts and opinions!!!
