When I was a kid, I was always surprised to learn that people were scared of the Boogeyman and stuff. I would try to figure out what was scaring them, and give them a logical explanation for it...like the trees outside were scratching on the tin of their house or their clothes were piled up in a way that made weird shadows. I also don't ever believing in Santa or the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy. But I did believe in the possibility of aliens and ghosts and Bigfoot. I dunno, I guess I thought there was compelling evidence for such.
