    I didn't tell my kids. I let them figure it out themselves. Once they had real doubts, I didn't try to sell them on Santa. I think they figured that Santa was a fun make believe thing long before they honestly expressed doubts. It took a while before they were ready to spoil the make believe by saying the truth out loud.

    My best advice would be to do the same. You'll know when they're ready to end the Santa game.

    Beware, though- kids are smart, adn will likely milk the Santa thing for at least two years after they figure it out. Especially if they can guilt a couple extra presents out of "Santa" by threatening not to believe in him anymore.

    Santa Claus is a tradition, a ritual, part of our culture. When you lose these traditions and rituals then you lose part of your culture. Save Santa Claus!

    After (wife) having three kids, trust me, they'll have it figured out long before you'll know. In the long history of human beliefs in the Claus our civilization hasn't ended yet because our kids figure it out. So enjoy your kids and remember, some of us on this BBS still do believe in the man. After all, where did my new flat panel monitor come from?
    See you on the trail

    If Santa would deliver oil instead of coal, I'd be bad 24 X 7! Well, okay I've been doing that already for years!

    I kinda agree with Pedxing. Sure, it can be fun, but when they figure it out, don't try to sell it to them anymore. Kids can be convinced to believe Mom and Dad, even if it ain't so. But then trust issues may arise later, with that inthought back there somewhere.

    Well my son has finally figured it out. In fact last week he went to school and told all the youngest kids in school that there was no Santa and your parents are lying to you! When the teachers pulled him aside and told him "its the SPIRT of Santa" he replied "Spirits are like ghosts and there are no such things as ghosts!"

    When he came home that night I came clean with him told him there was no Santa, its just your family buying your presents. He jumped up puming his fist exclaiming "I knew it!" I explained to him to let the little ones enjoy the story of Santa and not to blow it for the rest of the kids.

    But now instead of the threat of Santa not bringing gifts he knows that I hold the power of the presents . It's still good leverage.
