How old were you when you found out there was no Santa? Me, personally, I never bought into the whole Santa thing but when I found out there was no Easter Bunny I almost didn't make it out of the 8th grade because I was so depressed. So, how did you find out the real scoop on Santa? I got up to go to the bathroom and saw my Dad putting a bike together at nearly midnight on Christmas Eve... I was 9.
