← Children need to be sprinkled with fairy dust

MartinSGill's Avatar Jump to comment 13 by MartinSGill

The difference between childhood myths and fairytales is that we stop pretending (in many cases never even start) that they are in any way based on reality or fact.

Even Santa, once figured out, is acknowledge as a myth.

The danger comes when we refuse to accept myth and fairytales as such; which is where religion comes in.
