70. Santa kinda backfired on my fundamentalist mother.
I discovered he wasn't real when I found her hidden stash of "from Santa" presents.

After that realization, I extended that logic to the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy as most assume their kids will do...and God and Jesus, which she clearly was NOT expecting.

You reap what you sow, I guess. She'd taught me that I had to figure out for myself what was true, and that I couldn't rely on authority figures to tell me honestly.
