When I was in first grade, around Christmas, our class learned about Christmas around the world. We learned about the French Santa named Pere Noel. Children would leave their shoes outside the door and Pere Noel would fill them with candy and sweets. If you were bad his helper, Black Peter, would spank you! Our teacher had us leave our shoes outside the classroom door so Pere Noel could fill them with candy. I was so excited that while we were waiting I peeked outside. I saw a small little elf-like man dressed in black. He was dancing at the end of the hallway! Later that night I wanted to try it again. So I left my shoes outside the door for literally like 5 minutes, then checked outside and there was candy in them! But, no one had been outside! I'm still trying to figure out how it all happened!

I was told since a child that there was a Santa Clause. I never saw him before, then when in 1965 when I was 5 he came to my house and I hid under the bed. It wasn't untill when I sat on his lap that I believed in Santa!

I used to believe in Santa Clause and my mum was so good at convincing me that I believed it till I was 12. When she finally told me that Santa wasnt real I had the cheek to refute it because the milk and cookies were always gone on Christmas morning.

top belief!

When I was about 6 or 7, we had a church Christmas party. My dad dressed up as Santa Clause and all the kids sat on his lap and he gave them candycanes. when I got near the front of the line, I finally recognized him. I was shocked! I couldnt believe my dad was Santa! I didnt tell dad .I didnt want him to be upset because I found out his secret.

my mum told me that on midnight on Christmas eve all the animals could talk to each other and tell Santa what they wanted for Xmas. The amount of time I spent listening out for them. When I was old enough to know better I always laughed at her for saying this, however i am guilty of telling my son the same story!

When I was in first grade I didn't believe in Santa but my classmates told me that if I didn't I wouldn't get any presents so I automatically started believing in him and I still sorta do to this day. (though the belief is sorta fading. Kinda tired of going to bed at nine every Christmas due to that belief.)

Knowing that Santa Clause was always watching me and possessed of the speed to deliver all of those presents all over the world in a single night, and with annual, tangible proof of his existence, I would sometimes pray for Santa Clause to protect me if I was afraid of some situation.

i used to believe santa was real until i was 10!! becasuye when i was 8, i got a message from an elf (who coincidentally had the same name as my brother). i kept waving the message around when people told me santa wasn't real. untill my brother told me he was the elf. boy did i feel retarded.

i also thought whenever you sinned, the devil laughed and joked, and jesus hated your guts, untill i went to confession. I kept asking the priest if he was POSITIVE i was forgiven.

When i was a little girl I use to wonder how Santa got into my house because we had no fireplace..only a BIG central hall heater that was right next to my bedroom door. Well one Christmas night i stayed awake to see if i could get a glimps of Santa..and i heard a noise..i sat up in my bed all excited andi heard the noise again coming from the heater where mom and dad said he would come..the next thing i know..the gas cranks in the heater and it turns on..i started screaming "SANTAS ON FIRE..SANTAS ON FIRE!" thats when i learned the truth :(

I always saw christmas movies which depicted the dream man that would come and sprinkle dust on you and make you fall asleep at night so you wouldn't disturb Santa. I used to think that he was also the one that slowed time on Christmas so tha Santa could get to every house. So if I woke up in the middle of the night I always thought the time was going real slow and I would move slowly sometimes too!! LOL!!

When I was a kid, my mother would tell us during the whole year that Santa was watching what you were doing, and that's I could tell whether you were naughty or nice, but for some reason I thought that Santa would send his Elves out to watch children and I used to think that elves were hiding in pipes, vents, and behind walls watching everything you did.

I used to believe in Santa 'till I came down on Christmas morning and saw a strater strange wrapping paper. My older sister said that it was Santa's wrapping paper but, later that day I saw it with all the other wrapping paper.

I used to think santa was real, so I wrote him a letter asking for a laptop. my father stumbled over the letter accidentaly and read it. On Chistmas Eve, a big box with "To:Alissa From: Santa" was given to me by my father. He told me he got it from the Post Office, since we didn't have a chimney. I was so happy, I believed every word. Now I am older, and I know that Santa doesnt exist, and that he doesn't send presents in the mail!
