I live in Costa Rica. Every December they used to throw a celebration for Virgin Mary with all kinds of religious activities, but there were also carnivals, attractions, cotton candy, the like.

They made "mascadaras" (people dressed like ugly people or monsters like the Devil or Death - I don't really get why there were monsters in a celebration for the Virgin, I think I was about not letting the Devil to capture you and make you sin?). The whole street would be filled with masked people running around with a pig's bladder, hitting everyone in the ass and you have to avoid them (little children were not included in the game, of course - being hit with a pig's bladder hurts like hell). By the way, they only hit people willing to play (in the middle of the street, saying "try to catch me"); if you were on the sidewalk doing noting, they wouldn't do anything to you.

But parents would take their little kids, to the sidewalk, or to their yards, to just watch the game. Kids who WEREN'T told it was a game. It was like a ritual of passage of 2-4 year olds in my town.
A bunch of little kids crying their eyes out because they believed the street was filed with ugly giant people and monsters spanking everyone.

I would locked myself up on my room and cry and shriek when someone tried to take me to see the masked people. I only realized it was fake when I was taken by force and a "Devil" got too near me and I saw a guy inside of the costume.

I used to believe that there was a monster under my bed and that monster spray was real and that it would really get rid of monsters in my room. Years later i found out it was just soap and water...

I had this thing with shadows and dark places (probably from a certain Doctor Who episode I was terrified of) well whenever I walked down the street I felt that the moment I left the light from the lampposts I was unsafe and monsters could get me. The same if I was in the bathroom (we had a light on a string which u pull) I would drag it out as far as it went ready to run away before 'the dark monsters caught me' I had to be out of the dark in a certain amount of time

My nephew thinks that there are really monsters in his bedroom making scary noises, but that's just the wind blowing from the window.

My mom told me that if i didn't brush my teeth, the toothbrush monster would sneak into my room and eat me. I started brushing my teeth a lot more after that.

I used to believe that the Great Pumpkin was real and I missed out on a lot of trick or treating because of that. Me and my sister sat outside in the backyard waiting for the great pumpkin, all we got was scared by our neighbor's little brother and bitten by a raccoon. After our mom noticed the raccoon bites, we stopped believing in the great pumpkin and we realized how stupid we were waiting for something that doesn't even exist.

When I was really little, I played a video game where a dragon appeared in a desert, so for some odd reason, I started believing that dragons lived in deserts.

The Halloween Hobgoblins are a race of small, green creatures who live under bridges and in the trunks of hollow trees, and they love Halloween. They like other holidays too, but Halloween is their all-time favorite. Every year they come out of hiding to Trick-Or-Treat and play harmless pranks on the humans of the world, who never realize they're goblins and not just kids in costumes.

But the Halloween Hobgoblins aren't just playful; when they're mad, they can get vicious. And they hate it when anyone dishonors Halloween. They're known to destroy Christmas decorations that get put out too early. And if you don't wear a costume on Halloween, then at midnight, they'll sneak into your bedroom and glue a scary mask to your face. You won't be able to take it off until the glue wears off.

Sure, their methods are a little extreme, but rest assured their intentions are good. They only seek to protect the day they love most.

I used to think if you didn't use a blanket when you went to sleep monsters would get you.

I was afraid of the dark, but I believed that if I pulled my blankets up over my head the "monsters" couldn't see me. I spent a many sweltering summer nights sweating under blankets.


You need a category for fears.

I used to believe that Water Towers held sleeping dragons in them, and that the long pipe coming from the bottom was where they'd tuck their tails.

You know those old maps with the pictures of sea serpents and the like on them? Well when I was a kid I thought there really were HUGE sea monsters (as big as islands or continents like the pictures showed) in those places

When I was a сhild I used to believe that my parents were monsters, who, when I saw them, looked as normal people, but when I didn't look out, got their real appearance. Thanks time I stopped to think so.

my dad always told me stories about the Jabberwocky. according to my dad, he had log whiskers and smelled like catfish, was homeless and forever mournful. the stories were meant to be spooky but in my mind, the Jabberwocky became my guardian angel of sorts. Almost to the point of being an imaginary friend...lol

I was never scared of monsters under my bed or anything like that I thought that was stupid. I was terrified that I would hallucinate and see them though, since that was actually possible.
