I actually only recently stopped believing in Santa; my parents never told me that he wasn't real, and my friends always used to pretend for my sake. Then one day my friend Petra let it slip. I've never felt so unhappy. (By the way, I'm 27)
we used to believe in Santa Claus! That he would bring presents to the chlidren that were good during the year!
On Christmas Eve, I used to lay out some carrots with Santa's milk and cookies so the reindeer could have something to eat, too. I just didn't think it was fair that the reindeer did all the work and then didn't get any food for themselves.
When I was about 7 I figured out Santa couldnt of possibly delivered all those presents by sleigh, and decided that instead, he would send out fleets of big trucks that would sneak in and plant the presents in the houses really early in the morning.
I used to believe Santa Claus lived in the clouds, as opposed to at the North Pole. I may have been mixing him up with simplified depictions of God.
I used to believe that since we didn't have a chimney, Santa would break the window or front door in the house and get his magical elves an yetis to fix it when he left.
When I was small, I realised that our house didn't have a chimney. I got really worried about this because I didn't know how Santa was going to deliver all our presents, so my Dad made a giant paper mache key and told me that Santa could use his magic to turn it into a real key so he could use the front door to get in.
As a child, I never really got the connection between Christmas and Jesus... The only thing I was concerned about was Santa. Even while I was in CCD class in first grade, I still had no clue. All I knew was that somebody important was born on Christmas. There was one day where our teachers told us we were going to watch a movie about the meaning of Christmas.
I went to school the next morning and wrote in my journal "We are going to watch a video about Santa being born!"
When I was 3 or 4 I took a speech test. I had to say the what each of the pictures were. Then I got to a picture and said "tree". The tester asked "what kind of tree?" and the best I could do was "evergreen tree". For another picture I said "man" and when she asked me to be more specific I said "big man". I had never even heard of Christmas or Santa until partway through kindergarten!
When i was child, i used to think my father was my father christmas.
When traveling in the car at night I used to believe that the red dot in the sky was Rudolph (the red-nosed reindeer). It was just the reflection of my mom's cigarette on the glass.
I used to believe that Santa and God were really good friends and hung out together, and would switch out who's sky they went to (snowy sky or normal sky) based on the season.
I believed that Father Christmas was a very special postman who had a very big late delivery. I therefore believed the "Santa" gifts were from Jesus as it was his birthday & he was kindly giving children presents to celebrate. (My dad was a postman at the time!)
My sister and I used to believe that Santa saw you through the light bulbs, and thats why he knew everything you did.
When I was a kid, there was a cute toy shop in town (still around too!) One of the people who owned it was an older man who was plump and had the beard to boot! Seriously thought that it was Santa's hangout in the off-season.
I used to believe that If I really was bad i would get coal in my stoking for Christmas
It's a well known saying that if you don't go to sleep, Santa won't come to your house. I used to lay in bed agonizing over it, knowing that I HAD to go to sleep, but I would be so worked up about it that I couldn't fall asleep.
I used to believe up till i was around 10 years old that Santa Claus didn't exist since I was told that he died in a sleigh accident :)
Until i was 8, I believed that, If you didn't have a chimney, Santa Clause would come in through the toilet.
I used to believe that my mom had Santa's phone number. Everytime i heard here on the phone around christmas, I would have a little internal freak-out that Santa would bring me coal
