March 8: Fantasy
The Tooth Fairy (or Easter Bunny, or Santa Claus…): a fun and harmless fiction, or a pointless justification for lying to children?
I think these concepts are a fun and harmless fiction. What harm can come from children having something magical to believe in. A child should have the chance to believe what they want, if no harm comes from it. Eventually, we all grow up, realize that these concepts are fun to believe in when you are younger. They give you a purpose to be good or a reason to eat candy and pull out a tooth. They don’t make our childhoods, but the idea of them makes our childhood a little happier. Plus, who doesn’t want to be able to use Santa to make their own kids be better later in life. Short, sweet and to the point. Zero motivation for any more writing today. My dad is here and we are going to try and set up a garden for me and do a couple DIY projects inside the house tomorrow. Hopefully I can post pictures soon.
