I love that kids believe in the imaginary for as long as possible. When my oldest 2 children were younger, (7 and 10) my next door neighbour at the time rudely told them that mum cant afford all the presents they want for xmas so they should stop asking. When they said they were asking Santa she informed them he wasnt real. It broke their hearts and I was absolutely fuming to be honest. And yes, she also had kids.
My 8yo still beleives in Santa and just before xmas last year she came home upset as kids at school were saying isnt real. When I asked how she thought I could buy all the presents she got, she just knew the kids at school were lying. I believe let the Fantasy last as long as possible.
