I don't understand why you have to tell them. Why not just let them figure it out and ask you? Nobody had to tell me. I figured it out and asked one day at the appropriate age.
Only reason I see for telling them is if they are too old. 7 is not too old.

In your opinion.

My opinion differs.

You are such a douche, not even worth trying to have an intelligent discussion.

Good. You're clearly outmatched.

Calling me a double while offering no independent thoughts of your own is not a good argumentative style.

Ok then don't ask the question if you don't care about the answer.

re: Why do ex spouses act so dumb?


Fwiw, I miss the shite out of Santa Christmases. I adored Christmas as a kid and now I couldn't give two shits about it. No more toys, no looking for Santa in the sky, no waking up at 4am to open presents.. It's not fun like it was.
It may have been a lie but it was a damned fun lie and I'm glad my parents didn't try to not participate in Santa.

I respect your opinion on the it, but where does it stop? What if your 12yo still believes in santa/tooth fairy?

Checking in from disneyworld on this. That person you said " I do" with has hate for reasons I can't explain. My ex wife goes out of her way to try to make my life miserable. I shower her with love makes her more pissed. Thing is now I don't have to put up with her shite anymore.

She should probably leave that shite off Facebook. Probably why she is divorced.

My kids believed in Santa until 11 or 12. Christmas wasn't the same once they found out about Santa.

I don't have kids, but what difference does that make? People believe all kinds of stupid shite that isn't true, what's wrong with letting children stay innocent?

Also, threads like these always frick up my joxy-ing.

So what about it? What makes that better than actually believing? Who the frick cares, and why is it such a big deal? I'd offer that a majority of the kids probably are just playing along by this time, probably been like that for some time in history. Has it actually contributed to the country's mental problems at all? Has it caused the obvious decline in morals this country seems to exhibit?

What does it matter to the adults if the kids believe or just fake it? Enjoy it while you can, because as its said earlier, its never going to be the same after that. So if your (mal)adjusted kids no longer believe in Santa once they turn 8, your Christmases will suck for the rest of your life. Wouldn't you like to extend the happiness of a childhood Christmas as long as possible?

Geez, quit taking shite so fricking seriously!

Apparently it matters to you. 12 years old? That just seems extreme to me. But whatever.

The easter bunny should be eradicated from childhood lore.

Also, contributing to ruining the easter bunny's joxying.

They don't "figure it out"; their friends tell them. And then they realize that their parents are liars and they can depend on their friends for the truth. Awesome.
