How old were you? How did you find out? Was it a big deal?
i pretended to my parents for a while. i was told by my jehovah's witness friend.
..some bigger boys told me. So my dad hit them.
knew that to get to Greenland you would definitely need a stamp. Saw through that shit. Born cynic. Aged 9.
I'd sussed it for mysen and confronted my folks about it. They admitted it without question but made sure that I wasn't gonna ruin things for my sister (2 yrs my junior), which made me feel like I was in the grown ups' club.
good question, about 7 i guess - not sure how, don't remember it being a huge deal.
better question? - when did you stop (if you have) getting a stocking? - me, probably 19
I saw the presents I wanted for Christmas in the cupboard a few weeks before, but I kept up the pretence just to keep my parents happy. By the time I was about 10 it was just assumed by my parents I knew there was no such thing.
