In the days when I believed in Santa, my friend Dominic told me that he didn't climb down the chimney, he had a hole which he through at the wall and climbed in through there. I liked this theory because my house didn't have a chimney

I was almost completely deaf by the time I was five, which made "Twas the Night before Christmas" difficult to understand, because I couldnt hear the story being told clearly. I actually believed that Santa and St Nicholas were two completely different people (partners, if you will). Yet, the only "Nicholas" that I had ever heard of was the character "Nicholas", from the television show "Eight is Enough". I actually believed for a couple of years that Santa rode around with that freaky little bastard with the god-awful bowl haircut, and he helped him deliver presents. Needless to say, I watched "Eight is Enough" every week, just to score brownie points with "St Nicholas". I was a very confused child.

I stopped believing in Santa Clause when i was 7 bc she used carpet deodorizor on the bottom of my dad's shoes to make it look like 'Santa' had came. I made the mistake and smelled it and it smelled like roses so that ruined it for me and my brohter!!!

When I was about 8 years old, I had this Barney Bedtime Book and it was around Christmas Time. They kept playing "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town". Well, the lyrics creeped me out and I thought Santa meant to burn my eyes out with the Sandman(the Barney book had a story about him). So I laid there in bed, on Christmas Eve shaking in fear.

(I have another one!)

I once, about 7, believed that the Tooth Fairy would yank all my teeth out. I always woke up in the middle of the night to make sure my mouth was shut.

And in my dad's handwriting it said my reighndeer only like mushrooms they think carrots are gross. So i did not think santa could be that rude. An d i found out santa wasnt real iwas so sad.

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!

I came to the conclusion at an early age that Santa Claus did not exist because if the technology he had was real, such as a flying sleigh that could travel around the world in one night, then he would have given the technology to the American government to use against the Soviets and there would be no Cold War. The fact that this didn't happen was proof enough to me that there was no Santa Claus.

I've truly believed in Santa Clause until I was about 10 or 11. Being 16 years
old now, I know that he can't be real. Although, logically, I know he doesn't exsist,
I still listen for jingle bells of his sleigh and the red glow of Rudolph's nose on
Christmas Eve.

I was Santa for my four-year old's school, but despite my best efforts, he saw trhough the costume (as did his best friend, who came out with "Santa looks just like Alex's Dad...")

He now thinks
- When you wear the costuem, you're not pretending to be Santa, you ARE Santa.

- Becuase the real Snata was too busy to come to the party, but Dad took a day off work, then Dad is better than Santa, who is now some absentee, workaholic father figure... Yes, i turned Santa in to my Dad in a brand new way...

When i was about 5 we had a big family christmas eve and christmas day. there was a satellite passing over so my mother and aunties decided they would help us believe (and try and get us to go to bed earlier i think) by finding some bells and yelling oh my its santa. So up until i was about 12 i believed there was santa flying over and that i saw his sleigh.

When i was 4-8 I lived in a house with no chimney, only a back deck. So my parents told me Santa came in through the back deck. When I was 6 I asked for a puppy for Christmas and my parents got me one the night before but were going to surprise me in the morning. My dad had to stay in the basement all night so the puppy wouldn't bark and ruin the surprise. At about 3 am my dad stepped outside on the deck for some fresh air and I heard a nose, peeked out of my room and saw my dad, who is a large man. However, since it was very dark I was absolutely convinced I had seen Santa. This gave my parents a good laugh when they were telling me there was no Santa years later and I used this to protest.

I used to believe santa claus went into the stores and bought gifts for everyone. I also thought santa claus was a billionaire. I wished he was real so I can get anything I want without financal problems.
