There is a certain magic in childhood beliefs I think. Holiday times of course for many kids meant Santa Claus or St. Nicolas would visit in whatever way was traditional in that particular community. And there is also Uncle Nowruz for the Persian New Year in the Spring. I took particular delight as a parent in watching how much my kids enjoyed the holiday fantasies.
Of course there are many other childhood beliefs one can write about: The Tooth Fairy, various spirits and traditional tales. Some childhood beliefs are scary.
Other children I have known believed the commercial-inspired idea that the right shoes made them run faster and testing the speed of new shoes was something they loved. There are those times when kids think their parents know everything and can fix anything. I know one child who thought his dad got up early to help the sun rise (actually it was for getting off to work). Some of us believed that once we got old enough we could do anything we decided to do.
And then there are the beliefs from childhood that last a lifetime.
So this week write about childhood beliefs, yours or someone else's. Let your mind wander with this one!
I wish you all a happy season.
