National Tooth Fairy Day — 22 August

National Tooth Fairy Day on August 22 lets the kid in you relive all the fun of remembering how the Tooth Fairy swapped your front tooth for a few coins or even a dollar, which you discovered under your pillow in the morning. The myth is comforting for many children who are afraid of losing a tooth.

The tradition of a child receiving a gift for a lost tooth traces back to medieval Europe but the persona of the “Tooth Fairy” came about in the 20th century.  We love the Tooth Fairy story because it speaks to the wonder,  innocence and trusting natures of children.
