Sadly, I must admit I still clung to the belief in Santa until I was 12 or 13. I have an older and younger brother who are still pretty close to me in age. They knew, but I tried to keep the faith because I thought if I stopped believing I wouldn’t get presents anymore. Really though, we got bean bags one year before that and I heard my parents talking about how they hid “Santa’s” presents at my grandmas. I was in denial for at least a year… Deep down I knew.
