When did u guys come to know that santa is not real??

Wifey and I were just talking about this.
I felt that between 6 or 8 was a good time to break the news, depending on how strongly the child believes.
But with my own kids, once doubt slipped in and they started seriously questioning Santa's existence, I simply told them that Santa represented the spirit of giving and to shut-up and open the gifts.
Incidentally, and I'm sure everyone knows this, but the real santa was a black man. Here's what he looked like.
