Walk in on your parents wrapping gifts? Older sibling spoil it for you? What happened?

    Far as I remember, the logic of it just stopped making sense.

    I'm Jewish. I always knew. It was my job to keep the secret from my other little friends. And that is a job that I failed. I told my best friend when we were five. I got in trouble.

    I still long as I believe Santa will bring me gifts.
    I'm gonna go with the logic answer @Timshel_ said. a couple of years ago I found some letters I had written to Santa...and all my teeth I had lost...that was gross

    I never believed that Santa Clause was real, as in currently exists because 1st I'd have to believe that a person, could live that long & the Guinness Book Of World Records, never indicated; that it was Santa Clause but I did wish, that the Care Bears; were real. Even though I always just knew, that they weren't either because I never had seen animated people and/or animals walking around, that weren't on television; besides costumes & Halloween ensured, that I'd always know it was a costume because I wore costumes also.

    My parents were amazing so I didn't figure out until my grandmother told me he wasn't real.

    I found the gifts before I got them one year and started to notice the handwriting looked like my dad's. I remember telling my mom that it looked like my dad's handwriting and she came up with some excuse. Haha

    However, I still believe ;)
