So, I didn't want to threadjack about St. Nicholas and Santa. But I'm just curious when you found out the truth about Santa. How old were you and how did you find out? I was very nieve. I didn't realize he wasn't real until I was in 6th grade. Yes, 6th grade. I was 11 years old and my friends and I were sitting at the lunch table in the school cafeteria. It was a couple days before holiday break and someone mentioned their parents trying to still trick them into believing Santa was real, but they knew he wasn't. I couldn't believe what I was hearing...lol:lol:. I can't believe I was 11 years old when I found out he wasn't real. I didn't believe in the tooth fairy or the Easter bunny so I don't know why I held onto the belief that Santa was real.
