What funny/strange things did you believe as a child?

Postby SpiritTalker » Wed Aug 16, 2017 8:28 pm

I was having one of those silly "I remember when I was a kid I..." conversations and thought it could be fun to hear other folk's rememberings.

When I was a kid, I totally believed I could fly. Now I know it was out-of-body travel in my sleep, but back then I couldn't figure out why I could fly some times and not others. I thought I just needed more speed for lift off, so took a running jump off the top flight of our stairs...crashed into wall and slid the whole way to the bottom. Got up, and did it again and again. My older sister asked what the heck I was doing, and I explained. Big sister eye-roll. She grounded me with a flat declaration that people didn't fly. I felt so sad.

Fireflies were fairies. Everybody knows that.

Department store manakins came alive at midnight. Fact. I saw it on TV on Twilight Zone.

I believed people on the TV could see me just like I saw them. Edit: years before Samsung

I did not believe in Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny.

I didn't like fairy tales at all.

Hmm. That says it all.

I saw the same Twilight Zone episode, and it had me believing that too for a few years until I actually was in a department store at midnight. I was pretty disappointed.

Conversely, I didn't believe in Santa as a child, but I began to into adulthood. Not so much in the literal tangible sense that movies portray, but as an aspect of Odin.

We had wooden floor and one of the planks was lose and I thought there must be a hidden treasure. Note that we lived in an ordinary block of flats on 10th floor.

I did believe in Easter bunny and baby Jesus. Yes, in my country we get presents straight from him! We're special :-) When I looked out of the window there was a track you could see on the mountain and I believed he descends from the heaven on that mountain and then walks that track to houses and brings presents.

I had an imaginary friend with the same name as my uncle who died as a young boy... Creepy

We didn't have a chimney for Santa Claus. My brother told me he came in through the wall outlets. My brother also told me, one night when he got chalk dust in his eyes, that he would die from it unless I promised never to slap him again.

I used to believe that the Luna phantom from the first Scooby doo live action movie hid in the dark and was after me.
my great grandmother put that idea into my head

I used to believe kingdom hearts the video game was real in a way.

It didn't help that I had a lot of paranormal stuff happen at that time and shadows following me.
I remember one night a very scary looking shadow...I think it was something evil. Chased me home, it stopped outside the border to our yard.

Years later I learn that my grandmother blessed the house and it couldn't get in.

....but yes.
I truly believed in my heart kingdom hearts was real.

Now I'm 25 and still waiting
I was about 15 when I realized it ain't ever happening.
