My grandmother told my brother and I, that thunder was caused by potatoes falling off of God's potato wagon. This made plenty of sense to me.

When I was little my older brother convinced me that thunder was caused by clouds banging together. Makes sense even now.

When I was little, I believed my own little thunder storm "legend". You see, there was a dragon god, Nathan, and he guarded the skies. Thunder was him roaring, lighting was his fire, and all the wind was from his wings flapping as he flew. I never shared my 'philoshopy', it was my secret afterall. Me and my weird immagination...

My mom told me that thunder was when God was very angry at something. So I used to believe that until a science class helped me get over that :)

When I was little I used to believe that if I saw lightening or heard thunder I would be struck and killed, espaecially if I moved. I used to stuff cotton wool in my ears and hide under the covers to prevent death. I still shut my eyes now.

My parents always told my older sister and I that thunder was just the clouds bumping into one another. So, when my sister was in her Secondary School Science class and the teacher asks the question on what causes thunder....my sisters hand shoots in the air and declares its when they bump into each other! You can imagine that she's never lived it down since!

I used to think thunder was caused by clouds banging into each other. (I'm still not absolutely sure this isn't true!) I also believed that the wind was caused by the trees waving their branches around--and am amazed to see how many other people believed the same thing!

When I was little I used to be terrified of thunder,so my grandmother would tell me it was my grandfather up in heaven tending his apple orchard,as his wheel barrow became too full the apples would fall into the clouds hence the sound of thunder! I always tried looking for him when I was travelling on the plane but thought he must be sleeping.

I used to believe that Thunder was made when clouds banged together,
believed this right up to the first year of senior school when I told
everyone my 'knowledge' in a Geography class and got laughed at.

When i was little i used to think that when it was thundering and lightning it was all the dead Man United and dead Liverpool players having a game of football. Everytime there was thunder, Liverpool had scored and everytime there was lightning, Man United had scored.

When I was around 4 years old there was a tremendous lighting storm occuring over us one night.

As a typical scared child in this situation my mother comforted me by telling me that all the noise was my Father fighting the giant ladybugs under the ground.

That belief held for a while and caused me more concern than a lightning storm ever would.

When I was 8, I was told that people farted after eating baked beans and curry. The first thunderstorm after that, I thought that God was farting.
