This is how my husband and I have always felt about Santa as well. For me the whole "my parents lied to me"attitude about finding out about Santa has always puzzled me. Did these people have no magic or fairy tales in their life other than Santa? Did their parents also lie when they read them Peter Rabbit? After all bunnies don't really wear clothes or drink camomile tea!
