At work, everyone was surprised when I told them my parents never let me believe in Santa Claus, even when I was under 5 years old. My parents firmly believed that they would never have us believe anything they believe to be false.
Mind you, we did visit Santa at the mall and we had Santa decorations. We even called the gift passer-outer “Santa” and so forth, but we never believed in him.
I am a white protestant male brought up in middle class America, if that helps.
My co-workers were flabbergasted, by the way. Every single one of them brought up their kids to believe in Santa and actually believed in Santa themselves. I was amazed so many believed in him.
What about you? What are your demographics and did you believe in Santa?
Also, did you or will you raise your kids to believe in Santa?
Little Mahalothette, by the way, will not believe in Santa.
