    ...or the Easter Bunny...or the Tooth Fairy?

    I love seeing parents who work to give that magic and innocence to their children, and stretch it as long as they can.

    I personally didn't have parents that did that...and I don't ever remember actually believing in any of it...and when I have kids someday, I plan on going to great lengths to give them what I didn't have.

    One of my absolute favorite parts of the Holidays, is the young ones that still believe. :)

    Never believed in santa or the easter bunny... I was raised, and still am, Jewish.

    But I did believe in the tooth fairy. :) I actually still have all the money from the teeth I lost... all $2 or something. I keep it in a bag in my desk. :p

    I believed till I was 10 years old. My oldest daughter is 10 years old and she still believes. I won't tell her until she ask.

    I didn't believe in Santa, but I did believe in the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy...(only cause I was a light sleeper and I didn't know HOW my parents put the money under my pillow)

    Once my mom told me she saw an elf on top our shed watching us. It was the most convincing lie she ever told me lol.

    I'm not sure what you mean Corry, Santa is real, theres no "believing" involved.

    It's interesting that you have posted this question! One of the saddest days as a child was when I found out Santa was not real...age 8...I told my Mother about this one particular gift I wanted more than anything...it was "Jimmy Jet" which was the console of a jet fighter. Just a few days prior to christmas I found a box covered in my Sister's bedroom. I pulled up the cloth and there it was...That was that! This was 46 years ago and it is one of my most vivid childhood memories....
