    At what age does Santa stop giving??

    Please enlighten me.

    At what age is it OK to say HEY kid..santa doesnt exist your parents have money and the only reason poor kids get gifts is because our money bought it....(literally heard that one last week)

    Or is it just the MAGIC and as long as someone wants to be unidentified they are SANTA.

    My sister is 11 and she doesn't go to see Santa, but when I worked in a toy store all of her friends thought I was an elf. I played it off too. She knows we donate a lot to the needy, and she has no clue...because Santa writes on the box as where our family all uses tags on the gifts. Santa uses ONE PAPER for all gifts....AND...my mother and I both get gifts from Santa too!

    She questioned me this year and I explained the magic of Christmas and charity, etc.

    So how old are your children, do they believe, when will you spit out the truth? How old before Santa stops coming or will Santa forever live on in your house?

    There is no reason to tell them. They will figure it out. Its fun to let them believe in Santa and enjoy their Christmas.

    I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps "Oh look at that!" Then - whoosh, and I'm gone... and they'll never see anything like it ever again, and they won't be able to forget me - ever.

    I think I stopped subscribing to the Santa Claus thing around age 8 or 9, but I would not tell a child who still believes to give up that belief. Once Santa's gone, he's gone for good...might as well let them enjoy it as long as possible.

    Oh and I would try and make them think their is a Santa till they are like mom no their isn't. I don't really think of it as LYING just making things a bit more exciting.

    I told them the truth the first time they asked, probably around 7-8 years old.
    I don't see the point in lying to kids.
    Did it ruin the magic for them? No. Why? Because the magic of Christmas isn't about thinking some guy on a sleigh with reindeer brings you stuff, it's being with family and sharing good things and times that makes it magical.
    They also know the truth about the Easter bunny, leprechauns, and the tooth fairy.

    I'm never going to have kids. ever.

    Personally, I was still putting cookies and milk next to the tree until I was 8. My 8th X-mas, when I went to go check out the presents, the note said to leave a case and a quarter bag instead from now on. Ever since then, I've gotten the wrong present everytime. Santa, you're an asshole!
