The coincidence is an amazing event.
No matter how small, a coincidence has always fascinated me.
None more than the following true story:

In 1975, while riding a moped in Bermuda, a man was accidentally
struck and killed by a taxi. One year later, this man's bother was killed
in the very same way. In fact, he was riding the very same moped.
And to stretch the odds even further, he was struck by the very same
taxi driven by the same driver - and even carrying the very same

The Tooth Fairy

The loss of a child's tooth is handled differently throughout the world.

Here are some traditions that may be familiar...and others that may not be so familiar:

Slovenia, Spain, and Mexico
There is no Tooth Fairy.
It is instead a mouse that replaces the tooth with money or candy during the night.

Japan and Korea
An upper tooth is thrown onto the roof.
A lower tooth is placed beneath the house or floor of a home.
This helps an upper tooth grow downwards and a lower tooth upwards.

The tooth is made into a pendant head, key ring.
Some also follow the same customs as Japan/Korea above.

There is no Tooth Fairy.
The tooth is simply kept as a keepsake.

The tooth is fed in meat to a young dog.
Mongolians respect dogs as guardian angels.
Feeding the "guardian angel" the tooth helps make sure a strong tooth will grow in its place.

Their fashions change.
The games they play change.

Even the world they grow up in changes.

But inside they are still the same.
And inside is where things really matter.

Give your kids everything you needed as a child.
