Never Believed In Santa

How old were you when you stopped believing in Santa?

Err.. zero? Not being from a Christian family in a Western country, I never did believe in Santa Claus. I remember learning about Santa, seeing him in movies and tv shows and seeing people dressed up in Santa outfits handing out gifts but I have never believed that he was a real figure. Heck, at the age of 14 I even dressed up as Santa for school.

It seems very odd to me that parents in the West, especially the mothers in my observations, make a huge deal about Santa Claus for their kids and then make another big fuss about telling them that Santa isn’t real. Like “when do I tell my kids? What age is the correct one? I don’t think I am ready for my kids to know about Santa not being real?” Seriously there are so much other stuff worth worrying about and focusing your time on.

So no I never believed in Santa Claus. I have always known that he is made up and infact I researched the origins of Santa by the time that I had turned 13-14. But….Rudolf is real, right? Tell me he is, please!
