    What age were you when you got your last stocking / present off Santa?
    Did I misunderstand the question? I stopped believing in Santa at age four; I couldn't get to sleep and the words to the song were on my mind: "He SEES you when you're sleeping. He KNOWS when you're awake. He KNOWS if you've been bad or good. So be good for goodness sake." I was afraid my punishment for being awake would be no presents. Then I saw my parents bringing in the gifts.

    and crown him Lord of all."

    Actually, he never came to my house..
    Other traditions here, as, another Santa, a holly man, called Agios Vasileios, brings health and a good year to all, every 1st of January..

    You shouldn't have told us that! If Santa skipped your house, it's because you were naughty! Just kidding.

    My husband and I are in our 50's. Santa still comes, stockings still filled, deer still get a bale of hay and a mineral block every Christmas Eve.

    No, no... I meant what age did you get your last gift / stocking from 'Santa'. Whether you believed in him or not was another matter. Even though I AM 'father Christmas' for my girls now, I still can't shake the tiny feeling inside me that I still believe on some level I swear I still hear bells in the night on Christmas Eve!
