Santa Claus Still Popular Among American Families: Poll
More than 8 in 10 American grown-ups believed in Santa Claus when they were children, according to a new survey.
And they're keeping the tradition alive. An AP-GfK poll finds that two-thirds of parents with kids under 18 consider Santa Claus an important part of their holiday this year.
In multicultural America, Santa isn't just for Christians. Three-fourths of non-Christian adults believed in Santa when they were tots, and half feel he's important to their seasonal celebrations now.
The median age when adults say they lost touch with Santa's magic? 8 years old.
