How old were you?

No, not how old were you when you stopped believing in Santa.

How old were you when Santa stopped bringing presents?

I moved out of my parent’s home at 18. Santa left presents for me right up until the last Christmas I lived with my parents!

when I was eight, the note Santa left for me was in my mothers very distinctive, unmistakably unique handwriting. I looked my mom square in the eye and asked "Mommy....did you write this?" she sighed, looked down, and paused for a moment, then looked me back in the eyes and said, "Yes honey, I did." I smiled and shrugged. I didn't really care, because I always knew my mommy was Santa. She was a divorced parent who worked several jobs to put those presents under the tree, and knowing that made me appreciate her even more.

When I first read your reply, dvdguy, I thought you were calling her an SOB. Kinda bold. I'm up to speed now.

You gotta appreciate anyone, whether a single parent or even a two job couple, who goes the extra mile to make their kids' Christmas a happy time. One year my folks told me I wasn't adopted after all. It was a good year.
