When I was little I used to believe that when I blew bubbles, there was a little fairy inside each one that would be set free once the bubble finally popped. I suppose I got this idea from seeing Glinda the Good Witch come out of that big pink bubble in The Wizard of Oz.

When I was at primary school I used to believe that there were fairies living under our portakabin classroom so me and a friend used to crush up acorns and bits of sandwich and leave them in acorn cups underneath the classroom. The next day we would check to see if the fairies had taken the food - they had, so we really believed that when we had all gone home from school the fairies would come out and have a fairy banquet!!

When my class was in kindergarten, we saw sparkles in the air vents. Our teacher said that these were leprchauns that lived in the furnace so we'd always be looking in the vents and when we would see a sparkle, we'd yell out that we'd seen a leprechaun and the rest of us whould rush over to see the sparkles!

When I was a little girl I used to try to catch the tooth fairy. I believed that if I put an open hand under my pillow (and around my tooth) I would feel her, wake up, and close my hand, thus catching the fairy. Alas, I never did.

I used to put out stuff for the fairies" when I was about 9. Once I invited one over in a letter and was really dissapointed when she didn't turn up!!!!!!

I half-believed in the tooth fairy until I was 12 or 13 and caught my dad making the switch in the middle of the night. I felt really sad about it afterwards, like it wasn't my choice to stop believing, like Santa or the Easter Bunny, but that it was taken from me.

I used to think that little fairies lived in the electrical outlits and I would sit around the outlits in my house for hours at a time talking to them. I even left them some food crumbs to eat sometimes. Then I believed that when I slept, the fairies would come out and tap me with their wands and that was what gave me my dreams.

When I was 2 or 3, I would get fever blisters ALL the time. My brother, about 9 or 10 at that time, told me that there was a "scab fairy" and if I picked the scabs off of my fever blisters and put them under my pillow, the scab fairy would bring my a penny. I totally believed him, and that night, I put my scab under my pillow. I was so disappointed in the morning when I woke up and there was no penny. I thought that maybe the scab had come out from under my pillow, so the scab fairy didn't see it when she looked. I told my brother about it, he started laughing, and I then realized that there was no scab fairy.

I used to believe that my aunt had fairies living at teh bottom of her garden. we used to see their silhouettes flying about and once I even saw one riding a horse. Many years later I found out the it was all created by a projector in the shed.

When my little sister was very young, she never wanted to clean her room. One day, one of my friends was staying for the night, and we were feeling rather altruistic. So, while my sister was downstairs, we cleaned up everything in her room and left a note that said, "We are little dancing elves who clean your room for you! Our names are Feeby, Fobby, Foe, and Little Foofyfoo."

She believed in those damned elves for YEARS. It got even harder to make her clean, because she was convinced that if she just waited long enough, the elves would do it.

when i was little, i was playing scrabble and was losing terribly, so made up the word "yumyoga". my friend and i made up this whole make believe tale of a place which we visited at night. to this day, i still remember the names of several makebelieve characters of which i told people, including my brother. my brother decided to humour me and made up his own world of "fish". one night we promised we'd take each other to our own magical lands. i spent hours hanging curtains and other material to form a sort of tent over the edge of my bed. i filled it with lights and bits of tinsel. telling my brother that he had to keep his eyes shut on the "journey" to yumyoga,(across the landing) i led him into the room... where he laughed at me for having gone to so much effort over something make-believe.

When I was little I was told that the tooth fairy recycled teeth, which is why they had to be clean and cavitiy free for her to leave you any money for them. This belief was reaffirmed when I lost one of my upper front teeth and less than a week later my baby cousin cut the exact tooth that I had lost. I've passed that belief on to my kids.

When i was about 4 or 5 i saw the movie peter pan and i thought the fairy dust was just the coolest thing ever. so i begged my mom to go to the disney store and buy some. so when she did, i went out on the deck and sprinkled some on my head and jumped off. it never occured to her that i thought i could fly with it!!!!

I always thought if I turned really fast or watched carefully out of the corner of my eye I would see some of the fairy-tale creatures still around: like a unicorn. Actually, I think I still believe that deep down somewhere :)
