Mike / Canada
Hi, my name is Mike from Canada and this is for elllo.org. The question is did you believe in Santa as a kid?
Yes, I did believe in Santa as a kid and although I had my suspicions, I wanted to believe in Santa because without Santa Christmas doesn't seem special. But one unfortunate Christmas, about a week before Christmas day, I was in the pantry looking for cereal and I stumbled upon a number of pre-wrapped presents labled from Santa. This basically shattered all my dreams and from then on it's been a downward spiral.
