According to www.santacctv.co.uk Eighty-one percent of parents with kids ages 10 or under say at least one of their children thinks Santa Claus is real. Another 14 percent say their kids have outgrown the belief, while 9 percent say their kids never believed in Santa in the first place.
Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of adult respondents believe it’s OK for kids to believe in Santa, although they pick age 10 as the age at which children should learn the truth.
Just over one-fifth of parents with kids between the ages of 11 and 17 say their kids still believe in Santa Claus.
Most grownups used to believe, too
Three-quarters of the adults surveyed say they believed in Santa as a kid, up until they reached the age of 9. Refreshingly, there’s little sign of a partisan gap.
