My daughters are 9 and 6, and I am quite sure, at least the older one knows that there is no Santa Clause, but "I" am not going to tell her.
I have even spun some interesting stories to boost themyth.. Like when I was asked, why do some presents come wrapped, and some unwrapped, I explained
to her about the different divisions, and the Santa Clones. You see, just like the US is divided into states, and the states into cities, and the
cicites into zip codes, the Santa's have their own divisions as well. And some wrap, and some don't and sometimes kids fall under different
divisions at the same time.
And when asked what does Mrs. Clause do..
Why, she is at home dispatching, telling the different Santa Clones where to go, what houses where missed, and where they have to get to next.
Plus she teaches the elves, (who grow up into Santa Clones) and trains the reindeer.
Children grow up much too fast as it is, I want the magic, and innocence of Christmas to last as long as possible..
