My family visited Ireland when I was about 7, and I insisted on bringing a shoebox with airholes with me everywhere in case I was able to catch a leprechaun.
i used to believe that everytime someones tooth fell out, that in fairy land a big bell would ring, and then thr nearest fairy would grab a coin and fly off to get the tooth.
I had always wondered if a secret civilazation of elves liveing under the couch.
Then I found out elves live in the forest and fairies live under the couch.
My best friend used to always tell me these weird stories, and I'd always believe them. For a long time we believed in the "SHOE FAIRY" - if you threw your shoe on the roof, the shoe fairy would come and bring it back down, so one day we tried it. The only thing that happened was we got in trouble for throwing our shoes on the roof.
When I was little and we went for assembly in the big hall at Primary school, there were windows that the sun shone directly through when my class sat down, I could see little dust particles floating about, I actually belived they were faeries, when the "faeries" landed on people I thought the child was "choosen" for something and after assembly I would go up to some people the faeries had landed on and say to them you have been choosen, I left then VERY confused as I walked away.
i used to believe that Peter Pan would take me to Neverland but only if i told stories so everynight before i fell asleep i would tell my stuffed animals stories about Cinderella, Snow White, and ofcourse Peter Pan. I'm still waiting for him to show up. :)
I used to believe at the fairies when I was a little girl because I watched a film about the fairies with my mom.
When I was 7 years old, I watched in the flowers to find the fairies in my garden but I never found any!
I used to believe in tooth fairies and I thought they would leave you presents under the pillow. One time I got a letter from a tooth fairy and it wasn't till I was older that I found out it was from my dad. All my beliefs are now shattered.
I believed that fairies lived in lamp posts - their front doors were the little holes where the key fits.
I used to believe that if you were very quiet and snuck up on a mushroom and looked under it, you would find a fairy and she would give you a present if you didn't scare her away.
When we were out in the woods taking my little cousin Rachael for a walk, (she was about 4-5 at the time), she was looking at the flowers shouting, "Look! A boy fairy hat! And look! A girl fairy hat too!" She'd been looking at the wild flowers, and thought the blue flowers were for boy hats and the pink for girls.
I also had a big tree in my back yard with a door shaped "knot" at the bottom. I was positive a colony of naked elves lived in the tree and my best friend convinced me that we should lay my barbie clothes outside the tree for them so they wouldn't catch cold.
I spent the day finding my best and warmest barbie clothes and much to my happiness and surprise, the clothes were gone the next morning! I bragged to my friend that they had enjoyed our gift.
It wasn't until a month later that my friend confessed that she had taken the clothes! I was so mad.
When i was little, i used to believe that the tooth fairy lived in the garden of Eden with Adam and Eve. I always thought she was one of the angels that kicked them out
When I was 7, mom began playing 'fairy' for me. She'd draw me cards, write letters, leave small gifts... I believed until I was eleven. Now, reading through those old surprises, I have to laugh at how many times "be a nice girl and tell your daddy to buy mommy..." comes up in them.
When I was a young child, I lost a tooth one day at school. I decided to test the Tooth Fairy theory by not telling my parents about the lost tooth - until the next morning, when I went up to my mother crying because the Tooth Fairy didn't leave me any money.
Her excuse was that I didn't look hard enough, and sure enough when I went back ten minutes later there was a dollar bill sitting squarely under my pillow.
I used to think that the 'floaters' you sometimes see behind your eyes were fairies. I got many, many odd looks from people when they heard me talking to them, and I built little houses in the backyard for them, complete with furniture made of moss and sticks.
When my friend and I were in 3rd grade we believed in leprchauns, and started our own leprechaun club, We made leprechaun stew and left it in a hole until the next recess, and it had magically disappeared! We even looked in the grass and "found" the letters T, Y, K, and M: T being thank, Y being you, K being the first letter of my name, and M being the first letter of my friends name. The best part is that we got the whole school looking for leprechauns. We still laugh to this day.
When i was little my best friend told me there was a different tooth fairy for each street. She said that her block had Tinkerbell and that my tooth fairy wasn't as good. At four years old, this was devastating news, and I wanted to move on my friend's block so I could have Tinkerbell.
Whe I was wee I had a fear of faries and flowers, which, as you can imaginge, is odd for a wee girl. Here is the reason why.
When I was begining to read, my auntie bought me a lovely little book about a fairy village, but instead of houses, they lived in flowers.
Why, would this scare me you ask?
When I was 2, my brother was showing of infront of his friends and told me that if you went any where near faries the would jump out and kill me with a big knife then set me on fire.
I live in a cottage and there's a hole in one of the beams on the stairs, with a bit of wood stuck in it. I used to believe that it was a lever, if I could get this lever-thing out of the hole, I would be transported to fairyland.
Sadly, the wood hasn't come out yet....
