At dusk, when the sky would turn pretty swirling colors my mom would tell me, "Santa's making candy!" To this day whenever I see a pretty sky at night, I get nostalgic and think about all the ways I'm going to lie to my kids when they're old enough to understand, but young enough not to know better.
I used to believe black holes moved quickly through outer space, and if they got too close to Earth, they would wander around on the surface sucking people up.
As a kid we used to go on drives in the country. I noticed all these large things covered by tapolen mats. I asked what was under them. By brother told me they were u.f.o's under there. there was so many of them. Needless to say i was terrified of going in the country where all the aliens were ! (Later i found out it was haybales.)
I used to believe, when I was like five, that space had a bottom. I thought that the north pole was the only safe place to live, because it was facing up. I had no idea of gravity.
I used to think that the sun moon and stars were in the sky. the sun was like a light and would go out at night. the moon and stars were like night lights that glow in the dark!
I used to believe that the moon lived on top of our house because I could always see it from the window.
The moon was made of cheese and ......
there was a man up there looking down over you spying too see if you where naughty or nice ..and if you where he would tell my mom and dad ....
I used to think we didn't live on a planet just on the "ground" and all the planets and stars were up above us. I thought this until one day my mom said something about us living on planet Earth and I said "What we live on a PLANET?"
When I was little my parents told me that if I stayed quiet during evening car rides, the moon would follow us home. I apparently didn't get the fact that the moon doesn't move like that.
i used to believe that the sun/moon would follow me because i could see it where ever i was.
i believed that if you accidentally let a balloon go it would keep floating up so far that it would actually go into outer space.
When me and my sister were little we used to believe you could go "catch" a star. We were gonna go get it with a space shuttle, but we'd have to share it because the stars would try to float back home and we didn't think space shuttles would be able to "hold down" more than one.
That their was a man in the moon literly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When a celestial Comet streaked across the night sky sometime in the 1970's...my parents kept pointing up at the night sky for days saying "Look at the comet, right there, can you see it?" I spent the next several years looking for a "Comic Strip" like The Peanuts and Beetle Bailey somehow visable in the evening sky...always disappointed.
When I was a wee kid I used to believe that the sun was good and the moon was evil because when the sun was out everyone would enjoy it and talk about how nice a day it was but when it was night time bad things happened like criminals and werewolves roaming the streets and this was all due to the vengeful moon who was the evil mastermind behind it all.
In school, we learned about outerspace and going to the moon. Somehow I came to believe that everyone living in the United State was required to go to the moon before they died. I was so terrified of going to the moon that I planned my escape to Europe when I was older.
I used to believe that the sun and moon would follow me, so whenever I was in a car I would hide under a blanket.
During a very long car ride to the ocean, I came to the conclusion that the moon was actually a reflection of Earth, and if I looked hard enough, I really could see my family's car moving on the surface.
I used to believe that the moon was a giant mirror and, if I had a powerful enough telescope, I could see myself waving at myself.
I saved a "lava-rock" for years because my dad convinced me after seeing a shooting star that he found it. It wasn't till I was like 20 something and telling the story that it hit me, I was duped... (he even waited for it to cool) lol
