National Tooth Fairy Day - cute stuffed tooth pillow

February 28th is National Tooth Fairy Day!

The Tooth Fairy is a mythical character in Western folklore who is said to visit children while they sleep and exchange their lost baby teeth with a small payment or gift. The exact origins of the Tooth Fairy are unclear, but the tradition is believed to have started in the United States in the early 20th century.

The modern-day Tooth Fairy tradition involves a child placing a tooth under their pillow at night, and the Tooth Fairy coming to collect it and leaving a small amount of money or a gift in its place. The Tooth Fairy is often depicted as a small, winged creature, and is sometimes accompanied by a mouse or other small animal.

While the Tooth Fairy is most commonly associated with American and Canadian culture, similar traditions exist in many other countries around the world, with different characters and customs associated with the exchange of lost baby teeth.

Happy National Tooth Fairy Day!
