Out of curiosity, how many of you were disappointed when you found out there wasn't actually a man in the moon?

  1. Okay then, what about the whole cheese thing? Or Santa Claus? Come on guys, I'm taking a poll here.

    1. I don't think I ever really believed the cheese thing...or heard much of it, even! I first learned that the tooth fairy wasn't real, which crushed me until my mother let me be the tooth fairy for my younger brother. I held onto Santa for a great while (longer than I truly believed in his existence), but that heavy blow was severely lessened by learning about the actual St. Nicholas. I did tell my brother that I'd seen Santa myself when his kindergarten friends started pestering him. Six is way too young to lose Santa!

      All that to say: yes, I was quite disappointed.

    2. I seeeeee. Deep thoughts. I'm not sure where I was driving at with these questions. I'll be getting back to you later when I've found out what I'm talking about.

  2. Hahahaha! My parents brought me up knowing that there is no 'tooth fairy' or 'Santa'(other that St Nicolas), and no 'man in the moon'. I always thought it was funny that other children beleved in them, but I supose I sould stop laughing at others and be greatful that my parents spared me the heart-ache of having to lose my favorate "Fancies":)

    What is the 'cheese thing'? Sorry if that sound's like a stupid quustion, coming from a homeschooler, but I am not American so if it is an American tradition then I can't be expected to know about it.;)

    1. The moon is made of cheese. Which makes sense, because cheese is technically white anyway. A bit of American mythology for ya :P I don't know how it got started.
