Chuck Palahniuk
“By first believing in Santa Claus, then the Easter Bunny, then the Tooth Fairy, Rant Casey was recognizing that those myths are more than pretty stories and traditions to delight children. Or to modify behavior. Each of those three traditions asks a child to believe in the impossible in exchange for a reward. These are stepped-up tests to build a child's faith and imagination. The first test is to believe in a magical person, with toys as the reward. The second test is to trust in a magical animal, with candy as the reward. The last test is the most difficult, with the most abstract reward: To believe, trust in a flying fairy that will leave money.

From a man to an animal to a fairy.

From toys to candy to money. Thus, interestingly enough, transferring the magic of faith and trust from sparkling fairy-dom to clumsy, tarnished coins. From gossamer wings to nickels... dimes... and quarters.

In this way, a child is stepped up to greater feats of imagination and faith as he or she matures. Beginning with Santa in infancy, and ending with the Tooth Fairy as the child acquires adult teeth. Or, plainly put, beginning with all the possibility of childhood, and ending with an absolute trust in the national currency. ”
Chuck Palahniuk, Rant

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Though I adore the idea of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Sandman, the Tooth Fairy, and such luminary characters—especially their altruism and devotion—I still don't believe in them.  For I know the truth.  Only one such miracle worker exists who performs magic in my life, seeing to my wants and needs without fail.  That queen is my mother.  With unwavering faith I believe in her.”

Augusten Burroughs
“And if I said "because I'm a witch," they'd think I was crazy.'
'That's exactly right,' she confirmed.
'Because everybody knows witches aren't real.'
She nodded. 'Yes.'
'Except they really are real.'
She continued nodding. 'Mm-hmm.'
'But you also told me Santa and the tooth fairy were real.'
'Those were lies,' she said. 'But they're lies every parent tells their children. So they're not really lies so much as a script.'
'I slept with teeth under my pillow, so it seems like a lie to me.”
Augusten Burroughs, Toil & Trouble

“For loose teeth the tooth fairy recommends tying your tooth to a brick and throwing said brick down the stairs.”
Nicole McKay, A bit of rubbish about a Brick and a Blanket

“A theist can't empirically prove that God exists but he believes in God because no one can allegedly disprove God's existence. By his logic, you must believe in anything you can't disprove. That means all things are real until disproved--including the tooth fairy, the Loch Ness Monster, Santa Claus, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, etc.”
G.M. Jackson, How to Prove God Does Not Exist

“Rincewind formed a mental picture of some strange entity living in a castle made of teeth. It was the kind of mental picture you tried to forget. Unsuccessfully.
'Urgh,' he said.”
Terry Pratchett, The Light Fantastic

“How close to the moon does the tooth fairy soar
with her arms so full she can hold no more?
Could the tiny bright stars that hang in the sky
be the teeth that fell down as she flew by?”
Denise Barry , What Does the Tooth Fairy Do with Our Teeth?

Laura Thalassa
“All the old stories of fairies come back to me. Monsters that lurk under mountains. The tooth fairy that built herself a palace of children’s teeth. The wild fae that, with one look, can enslave their prey.”
Laura Thalassa, Rhapsodic

“My problem with democracy is that it doesn't exist. I'm not opposed to it. And I'm not opposed to the tooth fairy either.”
Charles A. Coulombe
