Losing baby teeth can be a traumatic experience for kids. The pain and anxiety of losing a milk tooth can be too much for a child to bear. This is why, the concept of the tooth fairy was created. Whenever a child loses a tooth, sheíll put it under her pillow so that when the tooth fairy visits, she will get the tooth and in exchange give her a gift or a treat. So instead of fearing tooth loss, which is an inevitable part of childhood, kids began to look forward to the event. Thatís what the tooth fairy is for-helping kids get over the fear of losing their milk teeth.
So when do we celebrate the National Tooth Fairy Day? Some say itís February 28 but others insist that itís on August 22. The August 22 is the more popular date between the two. The tooth fairy, which has European roots, is given honor during this day for helping kids through the tooth loss predicament. National Tooth Fairy Day is the best day to tell your kids about how the tooth fairy magically works. Yes, they will get a little disappointed eventually when they learn that it was just you who puts gifts under her pillow but theyíll understand why you had to do it.
The concept of tooth fairy is a lot similar to Santa Claus. The only difference is that the tooth fairy doesnít have to wait until itís Christmas to give you gifts. Anytime a kid loses a tooth, sheís there to exchange it for a treat. Make sure you download a free National Tooth Fairy Day on your computer.
