I believed in Santa Claus probably until early elementary school. When I was 4, my Mom and Dad did a great job keeping up the idea of him. Putting up the Christmas tree and the stockings and all the decorations and trimmings was a Holiday festivity, and something I really looked forward to. The 2nd half of the year was very festive because of Diwali and then Thanksgiving, then Christmas and New Years, and still is. We put our tree up on Thanksgiving, so that we have some time soaking in the Christmas spirit. I have always loved watching Christmas movies, especially Santa Clause, Elf, and Fred Claus. All these movies have made Christmas so wonderful for me.
