I used to believe that anywhere i was, someone was there with me, I used be horrified about it
My belief as a child was that when the lights went off mummies would come in my room.. coz I actually used to see them haha
I used to believe that whenever you used Irish Spring soap, you would automatically turn Irish and the banshees would come after you.
when my mum used to put me to bed she'd also tidy my room, closing drawers and wardrobe doors, I used to think the reason for this was to stop any monsters escaping and getting me,
I made my twin sister sleep in the bed next to the door so if any monster came in they'd get her first and i could run away (of course i never told her this)
even now if i'm in bed and i've left the wardrobe open I have to get up and close it, i think my husband leaves them open on purpose to laugh at me.
I used to believe that the "booger man" would come bite off your fingers if you picked your nose. (my grandpa told us that) he lost his fingers in a work related injury and told us that is how he lost his fingers!
I used to believe that the "booger man" was a tall skinny guy that was covered in boogers
I used to believe that my shoes had monsters in, and always used to check them before i put them on.
it wasnt until my grandad told me it would be stupid for monsters to live in peoples shoes, when they could live in a wardrobe or under the bed and have much more room.
now i think theres a something lurking under my bed and i dont like to dangle my feet over the edge just in case ...
when i was little i stayed round my 2 cousins' house,
and it was 11:50 one night and we were all in the living room and me and my cousin were (play) fughting, when suddenly my aunt realized the time and to stop me and my cousin from fighting and to go to bed she told us that if we dont go to bed by 12 o clock, an evil pumpkin headed man will come and turn us into pumpkins and we will be aten the next day...
IT STILL DIDN'T MAKE US TO TO SLEEP!
(we stayed up until 3 o clock and watched movies!
I used to believe that the monsters of the world couldn't get you if the lights were on. I had a very different idea of monsters back then. I always imagined them as creatures. Little did i know that monsters really do exist, they are just really horrible people!
I used to believe that my parents' cars turned into monsters at night, and if I ever had to go into the garage at night I had to get out as fast as possible or get EATEN!
When i was about 9, my nabors used to tell me there was a Fox that would come out at night and eat me. It would scare me so much that i wouldn't try to go play outside with them at night.
They had peace for a while.. BUT NOT ANYMORE
When I was little my much bigger brother would tell me... that little girls who didn't go to sleep by midnight, the boogy man would come along and put them inside a beer bottle. My brother was funny.
When we were little, my mom and dad took us to see Jurassic Park. On night when I snuck out of bed, I happened to look out the window, and right across the pool I saw a Tyrannasaurus Rex!!! So from then I was determined that there was a Rex in our yard, and that it would chow me if I left my curtain open. Only later did I discover that the "Rex" was a silouette of a tree against the sky... that tree really gave me a start, and it all began with Jurassic Park!
I about 5 and making my little sisters bed, and I thought I saw a hand with a cuff around it, and I assumed that it belonged to a magician. For a while after that, I was scared to sleep in the bottom bunk of bunk beds because I thought a magician would come out in the middle of the night and saw me in half or something.
When I was little I used to believe that if you didn't pull the blinds or curtains over the windows at night, a werewolf or robber would peek in and stare at you while you slept. When we moved, my new room had one window that was too high for me to reach and so oddly shaped that for the longest time my parents couldn't find blinds to fit it. I was so freaked out by it that I tacked up a sheet over the window and refused to let anyone take it down at all.
...and I still can't sleep with an open or uncovered window...
I used to believe that every night a monster would come right outside my window to either kill me or take me to this dark scary world if i remained awake or if he could see my face. So i made sure that I was sleeping and if I couldnt get sleep I'd hide under the covers till I did not fall asleep!
I used to believe there were two spirits in front of my window (I live in a really high penthouse) commenting on my day: if I did something good, they were happy, if not... :)
I also was scared about snakes getting on my bed from somewhere, maybe a hole in the wall or something. And I was affraid of something attacking me if I didn't cover myself good with the covers... :
I used to think a troll lived on my building's top floor/attic. One time, my neighbor came to my mom crying, all cut up and bruised and I thought the troll got her.
I used to believe unicorns and dragons were real, until I was 19.
I use to believe monsters lived in the heating duct vent in the older houses that was in the wall. when I would go to bed I would hide under the blakets and plead with them not to hurt me or my babies...dolls.. then when I would have to use the toilet, I would run very quickly and low and behold another vent. I would talk to it pleading for time and not to hurt my baby dolls I had hidden under the blankets. I was afraid to even let my feet out of the sheets and now to this day I can't sleep with the blankets on my feet or at least not having the blankets over the edge of the bed confining my feet.
