In the "Berenstain Bears" books, the bears are said to live in "Bear Country". Because of this, I thought that they lived on another planet, which was kinda like Earth but each country had a different species running the show (like there was a Cat Country, a Lizard Country, etc) and that somewhere on their planet there was a Human Country which was just like our world but a single country.

This is a very elaborate belief that my mother fed me for some reason. It started when I was about six or seven and went on until I was *twelve*, although by then, I was starting to have my doubts.

She claimed that between dinner and bedtime, two to six "dream fairies" would fly around our roof and that each one was a centimeter high, and that at night, they'd sprinkle fairy dust on me and if the dust was gold, I'd have magical dreams, if it was silver I'd have "sleepy-dreamy dreams" (?), and if it was rainbow-colored, I'd have adventurous dreams. She also claimed they could mix fairy dust together to have a combination of those themes, that nightmares were brought by a different set of creatures, and that the more surreal parts of my dreams were their doing.

However, there were a few drawbacks according to her: if I shouted, they'd fly away but might come back, and being kissed goodnight specifically by her or Dad helped them stay and if I was kissed goodnight enough times, they could stick around even if I didn't get a kiss one night. She also claimed that my cat plushie's job was looking for them.

She said that there were these other fairies who were hybrids of them and the Tooth Fairy called "tinkly tooth fairies" that cleaned people's teeth who had forgotten their toothbrushes.

My cousin also believed in dream fairies, although he thought that they poured "dream goo" in your ear and that's where *all* dreams came from. He also thought that if you drank "dream goo", it would taste like cherry-flavored rum and you'd pass out but then have only good dreams. (I never bought that).

The weirdest part was that my dad also said something about dream fairies and he's not even superstitious or anything.

When I was little I used to believe that every night, people who were buried in a cementery, would come out of their graves and kill those who had stayed in the cementery during the night.

That is why for a long time, I was afraid to go to cementeries to avoid getting trapped in there.

I used to believe No-Heart (From the Care Bears) lived behind my shower curtains. I was really afraid to get up at night and would have someone check the curtains before I pee

I had this weird thing where my mum would give me a back rub to stop me from being worried. After a few tries, we found out that talking about my worries was more effective, but when she did the back rub thing she claimed that she was "sending my worries to space". That gave me the belief that emotions were physical things that were just intangible and invisible (like water vapor) and I was worried that if she sent my worries to space, it would cause aliens to become randomly afraid because they'd "possess" them or something.

When my older sister told me that farmers were a real thing, I refused to believe her. I thought farmers were just a made up human creature, like wizards or vampires.
