National Tooth Fairy Day

Date When Celebrated : Always February 28th and/or August 22

National Tooth Fairy Day celebrates one of childhood's favorite visitors. The Tooth Fairy is an American tradition with European and superstitious roots.

Losing baby teeth is a sometimes traumatic experience for young children. Enter the world of the friendly, smiling and soothing Tooth Fairy. As a young child's first baby tooth becomes lose, the child often fears losing it. The promise of a visit from the tooth fairy and a gift, turns the occasion into something to look forward to. When the tooth finally falls out, mom cleans it off. It is often put it into a "tooth box". At bedtime, the child puts the tooth under his pillow. The tooth fairy comes after the child falls asleep. She takes the tooth and leaves a small gift, usually money. The tooth fairy leaves a gift every time the child loses a tooth.

Never fear: If the tooth is literally lost in some way, don't worry. The Tooth Fairy always knows, and will still leave a gift. She magically knows each time a baby tooth falls out, and will arrive that night , even if the child is away at grandmas, or on vacation.

Male or female? There is ongoing debate whether the the Tooth Fairy is a male or a female. But, it's pretty obvious. "She" is most definitely a female.


Origin of National Tooth Fairy Day:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. The tooth fairy dates back hundreds of years, probably to at least medievil times. We were amazed that the tooth fairy was not found in the encyclopedia.

Is National Tooth Fairy Day February 28th, or August 22?  Documentation on websites is fairly evenly divided, with slightly more recording it on February 28th. Some very reputable and authoritative sites differ on the date. Until we find further documentation, or the creator of this day, feel free to celebrate it on either date....or both!

This is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.


Flower of the Day: Foxglove

Recipe of the Day: Pineapple Upside Down Cake
