    All my kids still believe they're 10, 7, 5 and 7 months.. But they know ( or think) Santa brings one present each or to share and we buy the rest.

    Like other posters I'm happy for the magic to continue
    I'm sure i was fed that story as a child and it didn't stop me questioning the lie.
    I'm still quite amazed at how old kids that still believe are. My eldest is 10 and amongst his group of friends there doesn't seem to be any believers still. I just thought that would have been the general consenus amongst kids that age and over, particularly in this day and age of the internet and the likes.
    Oh well, whatever goes i guess.

    DD is 10 and asked about a week ago if Santa was real and she wasn't sure anymore. I didn't feel comfortable lying and came clean. She said she had a hunch since last year lol "How could Santa possibly make it all around the world in one night Mum? That's what got me thinking." Kids

    My DD is nine and a few weeks ago she quietly came to me and said "I know Santa isn't real. It's you and Dad. Is it okay that I know this?" And I said of course it was and before I could say anything about keeping quiet she said she'd always play along for other kids and her brothers and she started off, paused, came back and gave me a big hug and said thank you for all the awesome presents we've gotten her. Bless!

    DS1 is nearly 7 and I don't think it will be too much longer until he's a non believer, he's just to analytical and I can see him sort scratching his head about it all and that's fine with me because while we've done the Santa thing we've never had photos with him or been massive fans.

    DS1 is 5 & has figured it out. He kept saying, "I know you are Santa, mummy". I kept denying it and he kept insisting until I crumbled in a moment of weakness.

    He has promised to keep it a secret from his little brothers though.

    My eldest is 9 and still believes. I am desperate to keep the magic for as long as possible. I remember knowing Santa couldn't be real as a kid but so desperately loved the magic of Xmas that I played along for as long as possible.
