Santa still comes to my house! Even now that I am 23 he still writes "From: SANTA" on most of my gifts. In fact, he leaves more than my mom and dad; they're cheap compared to St. Nick!

My two kids are the only ones still receiving Santa gifts.

However, we all still get gifts from Silly Santa - some years it's been kooky ornaments, some years it's been Christmas jewelry, and then there are those years when it's goofy underclothes or pens or candies. We've just recently made sure that Santa gives our Mom silly gifts, too.

I'll be 35 this Christmas and Santa still leaves me presents at my mom's house. In fact, all the presents under her tree are from Santa.

It stopped the year I found the hiding place where my mother kept the gifts. My mother isn't bright. She kept them in plain site every year. I was devastated when Santa stopped coming. That's why I've been holding onto my kids still believing even though my oldest is 14 now...

I wish I held onto that much longer. My mom told me when I was six that Santa wasn't real just because it got on her last nerves

I like the thought of Santa, though!

Its hard to say. I remember having some doubts about Santa, probably around 7 or 8, but I don't think I came out and said that I no longer believed until I was about 11. Doesn't matter though, Santa doesn't care that I don't believe in him and he still leaves me presents until this day!

I realized it the year that we moved to MI and lived with my grandparents. I was 9, I think. I came into the living room after going to bed, and there was grandpa eating the cookies I had just left out for Santa! And then in the morning the 'thank you' note that was always there mysteriously matched my grandpa's writing.
However, my mom always put 'from: Santa' on a few gifts. I'm 22, married and have 2 kids and she still does it, hehe. Heck, my brother is 27 and married and she still does it for him. I love it!

My parents kept writing Santa on gifts long after I stopped believing.
