I cannot totally confirm nor deny that the "real" Santa leaves me presents.

Sure, when I was young, I saw all the gifts in my folk's closet, and I remember mom always saying that she had to "buy Christmas", which I always disliked hearing because Christmas is so much more than what you can purchase at a store... And it wasn't hard to tell that some presents were really from my mom and not Santa as they were marked (handwriting was the same, wrapping paper was the same, etc.) And I'm fairly sure that mom and dad never actually mailed the letters I wrote to Santa, but there were a few times when I got gifts that were just too perfect to be from my parents. Things that I hadn't written on any wish lists, but there they were!

I like to think that I still get gifts from Santa.

My mom told us if she ever heard us say we didn't believe, we'd never get another present from Santa. I'll be 38 in August and those words have never been said by me or my 2 brothers. My kids will be told the same thing. My 8 yr old is asking because kids are telling her that, but I tell her to believe what's in her heart. So I guess Santa never stops bringing presents.
