The Tooth Fairy
Think back to the day you lost your first tooth. Even if you cant remember the exact day, you probably remember a bit of magic associated with that first lost tooth. Do you know where the “Tooth Fairy” comes from? Three hundred years ago the French had a fairy tale about the Tooth Mouse. In the fairy tale as legend goes the mouse changes into a fairy to help the good Queen defeat the evil King hiding under his pillow tormenting him and knocking out all of his teeth. In the U.S. the common lore told to children is that when their tooth falls out, if they leave it under their pillow at night, the tooth fairy will visit them while they sleep and leave a gift which often is money! The Tooth Fairy has become part of American Culture and is presented to many children as fact!
