I used to believe (because my mom told me this) that there were little men that lived inside the traffic lights that operated them. She told me that was why the lights worked all the time, and if we saw a broken traffic light, she would say, "poor little man's gonna get fired for that". I believed this far longer than I should have.

When I was little, I used to believe that there were actually people (actually monkeys) inside the traffic lights changing from green, to yellow, to red. I think I got the idea from old Flintstone shows.

When I was little my dad told me that a little Leprechaun lived in the electrical box at the corner of every single stop light in the world. If they didn't like you or the car you were driving then the Leprechaun wouldn't change the light for you and he would make you sit there for a long time. So forever everytime i was in the car at the stop light I would pray that the Leprechaun liked me so we didn't have to sit there forever.

I used to think that little men lived inside traffic lights and when the lights changed to red they had to colour in the green circle before the lights changed! Odd, I know!

When I was three; I firmly believed that elves lived inside the red lights, and that they had some sort of messaging system that told them to hold up a red/green/yellow ball up to the hold. It was a greatly amusing thing to think about at the age of three.

When I was about 4 or 5 years old.. I thought that mice lived in the stop lights. I also thought that they wore little uniforms.. (the mouse that worked the red light would wear a red shirt and red hat, etc.) I would watch many cartoons and I believed that the mice were toons.. It took A LOT of explaining for my parents to change my mind!!
