    Oh goodie, more countries i'm not going to (although i doubt they would care if i come or not)
    oh but you only have to steer clear of all those countries in the first weeks of December so Saint Nicholas doesn't have the chance to whip you and put you in his jute bag if you've been naughty. it's all good the rest of the year

    I've forgotten exactly what age but I'd say around the 8-10 era.

    LOOOL when i was 4 I stopped.. but there where days my friends in year 3 almost convinced me that he really exists ^^.. i don't know why but even though i new that this whole idea of santa just couldn't be possible, i was depply always hoping that i'm wrong ^^ Sounds probably not believable but I was already with 4 a kind of "reality" kid

    At a very young age, 5 or 6 probably, not long before I stopped believing in God.

    I never believed in him because my parents didn't lead me on like some people's parents. They couldn't be bothered with the putting the presents under the Christmas tree we got it on Christmas day from their bedroom. I had friends that were believing in santa when we were in Year 8 .

    Sorry :emo: I've listened to that song too many times whilst drunk and...I tend to...get the wrong lyrics stuck in my head and just sing them anyway.

    I don't think I've ever listened to the whole thing sober.

    I was 6 or 7 I think. Some kid at school told me Santa's not real.

    So I went home and said to my Dad "Dad, Santa's not real".

    His response: "Well I know that, who do you think puts your presents out?" :rolleyes: Thanks Dad!

    I feel sorry for all the people that never believed in Santa.
    Me too :yep: and for those kids whose parents never did the whole Santa thing with them!

    I'm not sure that I ever believe in Santa. Maybe until I was 6 or something? I don't remember back that far.

    hmm past 10 I think. Maybe 11 or so. Quite late. I was voluntarily in denial - didn't want the magic to end.

    My kids are 5, 3, and 1, and the eldest two very firmly believe in santa (the baby has no clue either way of course).
    Woah. Dude that's bad! Aren't you in highschool at 11? Didn't you get the piss took out of you?
