Vouchercodes.co.uk have done a little survey into Christmas
The survey revealed that 46% of children under 18 have never believed in Santa! (OMG!!!)
It also found that girls hold onto the Christmas magic longer than boys, (Yay Annalise!) – believing in Saint Nick until the age of eight years and three months on average. By contrast boys stopped believing an average seven months earlier, at only seven years and eight months old (Boo for Frankie)
VoucherCodes also wanted to find out the ways in which children discover the truth about Santa, and found that the most common way was being told by someone at school, with nearly a third of the vote (31%).
Other common ways of finding out were through an older sibling or relative (27%), children seeing their parents putting presents under the tree instead of Santa (26%) and seeing a Santa impersonator without their hat/beard on by accident (4%).
Blimey….don’t get caught putting pressies under the tree and don’t send your kid to school near Christmas time!!
