When I was 3, I used to think that when people were sleeping that they were temporarily dead. So whenever my mom, dad or sister took naps or fell asleep before I did, I'd run outside to find any sort of flower looking plant and place them on the bodies. Also when they woke up, I'd ask them what they dreamed about because I thought dreams were the mind's interpretation of Heaven or Hell. I have no idea how these thoughts came to be, but I did this until I went to kindergarten.

When I was little, my parents would get me to go to bed by calling it "Mrs. White's Party" I can't believe I fell for that more than once; I believed that there was a Mrs. White (actually the sheets), and she had me spirited away to a party after I fell asleep. I believed that she waved a wand or something to make me forget there hadn't been a party.

I used to believe that if I left my clothes in the floor when I went to sleep they would turn into me and kill me to take my place.

When I was little I used to believe that when you fell asleep you would forget everything you did that day. I don't know how this was possible but I remember trying to remember things to prevent me forgetting them before drifting of.

I shared a room with my little sister, and mum told us to have a competition to see who could go to sleep first. I told my sister that I would know when she was asleep, because at the instant a person falls aslepp, they making a mooing noise like a cow. For months afterwards, she made this noise every night, to try and trick me into thinking she'd fallen asleep before me!

I used to have the WORST time trying to get to sleep, I thought that if I face the wall, my mom would come in and spank me while I slept, and that if I slept facing the door, a robber would shoot me. Dont ask me why. Im odd.

I remember always thinking that when I went to sleep, my eyes would roll in the back of my head and watch a movie of what I did during the day (a dream).

I used to insist that I never slept, because I couldn't remember being asleep.

When I was a kid my mum used to say "sleep tight, hope the lops don't bite" [bedbugs]. For years I thought "the lops" were actually giant fishfingers.

My mom used to tell me that if I took a nap that when I woke up there would be a fallen star outside. As soon as I would wake from a nap I would look out the window but there was never a star there so I figured that I must not have napped long enough.

My 3 year old thinks that dreams are things "getting in his eyes." While it's funny, it has lead to some long nights, trying to get him to go back to sleep!

my cousin told me when I was young, that if I wore socks when I sleep that I would loose my toes. To this day I still won't wear socks when I sleep. Just in case.

I used to believe that we only breathed when we were asleep, since I only "heard" myself breathing when I was lying down.

I used to believe that if you had a good dream, it would come true later on in your life but the bad part is that right after it came true, your worst nightmare would come to you with a hammer blow!

For quite long time (4-17) I believed that I must cross my fingers, legs, or arms in order to stay alive while sleeping. I imagined that if I just lay straight as a stiff, I will become one.

my older sister told me that at night you would get sucked into the tv, and walk through the different channels. In the morning you would wake up and remember, and that was how we remembered dreams!

I used to believe that during the night while we slept, we were on the part of the world that was "upside down." Of course our nighttime was China's daytime, so that's when they were upright. Sometimes I would get a floating sensation as I drifted off to sleep, and I assumed that I was feeling the world rotating into an upside down state for me.
