i found a receipt for my christmas gift from Santa on my parent's dresser. yup, they had me going for a looooong while. i don't know how i made it through middle school without being teased about this, i guess they just thought i was joking or poking fun at little kids when i returned from the holiday break saying that Santa brought me what i had asked for. lol. i laugh super hard about it now, i even asked my sister how come she never filled me in when she found out or was told. she said she didn't want to ruin it for me. i even asked my parents and they were like 'Santa isn't real?!?!' oh well, it didn't hurt me any believing a little longer than others.
I DO recall getting curious, and going to my parent's closet and looking UP: saw that kick ass Barbie & The Rockers stage (I think I was in 5 or 6th grade) and thinking, "Man. Now I have to fake 'surprise'."
I don't recall being shocked about no-Santa.
I was more worried about being caught snooping and having to fake it. :)
