    Hmm not got to that stage with DD only being two but I like to think I'll tell her that he cant come when you reach a certain age cos of the new babies, that way they dont ruin it for siblings. Other then that they kind of figure it out, I Know I did.

    But I gues before they start Seniors/high school so 9/10 I suppose

    Oh blimey, I wouldn't tell them until they come to me and ask because they have heard someone say, there is no way I would take that magic away from them.....jade is 8 and she loves the thought of father Christmas and gets so excited, I wouldn't have it any other way, it does not last long their innocence, so don't be in any hurry to ruin it! It is magic when you are a kid and have all these things to believe in! x

    I agree with Tam!

    My sister is 11 and we know she doesnt believe in him (mainly because she cant keep a straight face when talking about "father xmas!!) but she pretends to mum and dad that she does still believe in him !!! :lol:

    Some boy at school told me that he wasnt real and i didnt belive him at first, so i said "yes he is real because ive heard him...na na na na na" and he said "nope its your mum and dad" .........was heartbroken !!!! :rofl:

    i think its all about the spirit of christmas and father christmas is a part of that so he may not be a real person, but he is a part of the magic.
    I dont ever remeber being told there wasnt a father christmas etc,
    i figured out the tooth fairy etc.

    :cry: what? sants is a fake????????

    i have never been told and my dad still would not admit it if i asked him now, the way i did realise though was just by me saying to my mum
    "what have you got me for xmas, dont worry i wont tell carl(little brother) there is no santa and she just agreed with me."

    but no ild never sit down and tell them

    i never believed in the tooth fairy though :lol:

    but im not even trying to be funny... i honestly swear i believe in father christmas. flying raindeers the lot :D

    I still believe in Santa. I stay up every year to see if I can see the reindeer flying - I swear one year I will. Watching Santa Claus the movie 3 times on Xmas Eve every year helps :oops:
