Young kids believe a lot of crazy things, that's just part of being a kid. But as a kid or child grows up and gets to understand the world around him or her or more so the environment, they begin to make real sense of the world. As kids, our imaginations often get the best of us. And in hindsight, you can't help but laugh at some of the most ridiculous things you used to believe as a kid. What's more fun than reminiscing about the silliest things you thought were real as a kid.

Here are some of the most hilarious and completely untrue things ever believed by children - I bet you can call it the origin of fake news!

Some of you as kids believed that Father Christmas was real! Yeah, you did believe that! The modern character of Santa Claus was based on beliefs surrounding the historical Saint Nicholas who was a fourth-century Greek bishop and gift-giver of Myra, the English figure of Father Christmas, and the Dutch figure of Sinterklaas are also based on Saint Nicholas.

As a kid, you might have believed that if you shave your chest, legs, etc, the hair will grow back thicker and darker. But in contrast, that's largely false. Shaving your hair doesn't change its colour or rate of growth and thickness. Shaving body or facial hair gives the hair a blunt tip. The tip might feel coarse for a time as it grows out. More so, during this phase, the hair might be more obvious and perhaps appear darker or thicker.

Don't deny this; as a kid, you also felt all grownups knew what they were talking about and were always right. But the truth is; adults aren't always right, though as kids we feel that they are. Everyone makes mistakes, no human is perfect, but most people don't have the decency to admit it - their mistakes. They shout, become stressed, and give in to their egos then make life a mess for themselves and others, by admitting they're right even when they're wrong.

Other things you might have believed as kids were: you can see Santa Claus when you behave, every song on the radio was being played live, and artists did sing live in a music video - it's just the song being played while the video is being directed and shot then the artist mine the song, some kids also believed before colour TV was invented, the whole world was in black and white. Funny right?

So tell Sthenia, what silly thing did you believe as a kid?
