Posted:I don't rememebr my exact age, but I know where and how it was made known to my parents. We were sitting in a restaurant (which scarrily is the one I am now working, more than 10 years later!) and talking about what I wanted for Christmas, and mum and dad obviously suspected, but had a great way of checking it. They asked "and where are you going to sent your letter?" to which I replied with our home address and promptly burst into tears.

Posted:I use any term, but father christmas i use rarely these days, so I'll make the effort:

I think I found out when I was 9, at primry school, and FATHER CHRISTMAS came to our school. And We all got to go into FATHER CHRISTMAS' grotto and I sat on his knee, then I started crying.... cos I realised it was my daddy dressed up as FATHER CHRISMAS! tragic huh? lol

Posted:What?! Santa's not real?

Seriously, I think I was 5 when I found out. It was more of a joke really, my sisters and I trying to tell my dad that we knew he was FATHER CHRISTMAS and him trying to convince us that FATHER CHRISTMAS was real. It never worked after we found our presents in the back room, after endless hours of searching.

Posted:I started getting an inkling when I was about 7/8 I think. Someone managing to visit every single child on the planet, managing to break into their houses down a thin, sooty chimney, and come out totally clean, let alone if the house didnt have a chimney. That always confused me.
And the fact that rich kids always got better presents than poor kids.
I suppose I was more confused, and to an extent I felt like [censored], that my parents, and entire family, had been repeatedly lying to me for so many years.
