My mom is 53. But still santa comes to my house. Don't think like that. It is a festival of joy and santa leaves no one alone and sad.
Santa still comes to our house every year, even though our daughters are now 24 and 19. Plus, this year Santa gets to come for our new son-in-law!
I've always loved being the "Santa" who shops for our girls, buying the gift and then watching them open in on Christmas morning. But this year I got to buy for my son-in-law, and it was a new experience. No matter how old "boys" get, they still want some kind of toy. Buying grown-up toys for him was a lot of fun!
My parents always told us that Santa wasn't real, but I don't see the harm in letting my children believe :).
It's all part of the magic that is Christmas :D
Well, according to what my parents have said, we didn't have a lot of money when I was a little kid, but I never noticed it. Wasn't so much the price of a present that mattered to me, even then.
As for Santa? I never stopped believing. Hope I never do! To quote Fred Gailey in Miracle on 34th Street, "Faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to".
So what if you don't get the most expensive toy? The love that comes with it is priceless. I think most kids know that, no matter the age. :)
And to answer the original question, so far he's been to my house for 56 years. I have no reason to assume he'll skip this one, though I wish he'd get the reindeer to stop stomping on my roof. It's metal, and sounds like ...well, like a bunch of reindeer on a metal roof!
I was 12....I know, too young, wasn't very happy to find out.... :elf2:
My son turns 9 in October. I'm wondering if we shouldn't have "the talk". I've been wrestling with this for a few months now. I kinda feel like we got away with one this past Christmas.
