He's making a list, he's checking it twice, and your kids are hoping they were nice enough to get some gifts from Santa Claus. There's nothing cuter than watching little ones jump out of bed on Christmas morning to see what jolly old Saint Nick left for them under the tree.

Eventually, little kids become big ones (tear). At some point, it's no longer cute to expect an overweight man with a beard to break into your home in order to give you stuff in exchange for good behavior.

So how old is too old to believe in Santa Claus?
