Survey: Parents Telling Kids that Santa Isn’t Real

What do you do when your kids ask you whether or not Santa Claus is real?

A recent poll by Wakefield Research finds that some parents are blowing Santa’s cover.  When asked, 1 in 5 (20%) parents confess to their children that Santa isn’t real, while 15% claim they don’t know, avoid the question, or tell their child to ask someone else.

Fortunately, for every Scrooge there’s someone with Christmas spirit to spare.  Nearly half (48%) of Americans believe you can never be too old to believe in Santa Claus.

Happy holidays from everyone at Wakefield Research!
