question time!

Excuse me if this is worded strangely- I don't want to 'enlighten' any kids who may happen upon this.

When did you find out "the truth" about Santa? And the Easter Bunny, tooth fairy, etc. How did you find out? How did you react when you found out?


I found out 'the truth' about all three of them at the same time, and I was pretty okay with it. I didn't cry or anything, in my little kid mind, it just sort of made sense. I think I was probably 8 years old; some kids at school had told me the real deal about Santa, so I asked my mom about Santa and she didn't give me an answer- and then I said, "Well does that mean that it's the same for the tooth fairy and the Easter Bunny too?" And my mom just walked out of the room. I remember thinking, well, now that I know, I can still have fun on those days anyway.

My sister, on the other hand, cried and pouted for a few days when she found out.
