Of course DD 3 does, but last year DS 9 cornered me!!!!! I knew when he asked that he already knew the truth. I was honest with him. I told him how important it was to play along for his sister. He was such a good sport!!!!!

My dd is almost 3 and I don't think she really "gets" Santa yet. She is really into Rudolph though. She hasn't stopped singing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer since last Christmas. lol :D

Aw that's too bad. :no: I'm lucky in that my 12 yo does a fairly convincing job of "believing" in santa. I think he gave santa up around 9, but he's always been happy to foster the belief in santa.

I'm not quite sure.. DS8 (barely) came home from summer school one day asking questions because some big kid told him that he caught his parents putting presents under the tree. I told him that maybe Santa had them set them out for him. He didn't buy it. I told him it was his choice, but if he picked the wrong one, he may be severely disappointed. DD2 had better believe!!

My DS12 doesnt. He was my helper the past 2 years xmas eve. :) I think This will probably be DS7 last year in believing. He'll be 8 by christmas and is in 2nd grade. He was asking questions last year, so I dont know how much more I can hold him off. DS6 is a believer.

Ds12 is autistic so he still believes. Ds2 is too young to understand right now. I told dd9 the truth last year when she asked if he was real. I said he was a real person at one time and people remember him now by doing what he did.

As of right now they both do. I think this may be the last year for my older DD -- she turns 10 two days after Christmas.

my daughter will be 6 in Oct and believes in Santa. My son just turned a year so he still has a couple of years until he understands who Santa is.

I am pretty sure ds7 still does..he asked some questions last year but I'm hoping I convinced him..I would like just 1 last year of Santa with him. ds4 still believes without question and ds20 months will just now have an idea of what is going on this year

My ds does not believe in Santa. He figured it out last year when he wanted to know how Santa can visit every house in the whole wide world in one night. My other ds, who is 7, still believes and the older knows that he better not say a word.

My DD 9 says she still believes but I do not think she does. For the past 2 years the questions are becomming more and more and she also has a girl in her class that told her last year there is not Santa and that your parents buy everything. I really hope to at least make is through this year, although in my heart I think she is only doing it for me and her father. It will be so sad to see it end. :(

My kids are 7, 6, and 2. They all believe in Santa although my dd2 is just understanding about Christmas. This site has gotten me so excited for Christmas I have been telling my dd that she has to wait until Christmas for all the toys she wants. Now everything she sees she says "I want this for Christmas". LOL it is so funny because basically everything is for Christmas.

YUP...My kids believe in him. They are only 2,3 & 5. My problem is they are scared to death of him. They want ME to tell him what they want.

I know ds4 believes, dd is only 2 so she doesn't really know what's going on yet. Now ds10, I think he knows the truth but he still wants to believe in him so he won't come out and ask or say it. Which is fine with me, that way he doesn't accidentally slip in front of his brother or sister and I think it's really sweet that he won't admit it because it shows that he doesn't want to grow up too fast.

Can the OP add a poll to this thread? It would be much easier to see the average ages. I am in such a panic about this one.. I don't want it to be over!
