#WorthRevisit: Saint Apollonia: Tooth Fairy Traditions

My Goalie is starting to get bigger and I realized we still haven't experienced him losing his first tooth yet. It's been over 3 years since Little Man lost his first tooth so I figured it was time to get prepared for Goalie's. Have you heard of Saint Apollonia before? Her Feast day is actually in February and she is the patroness of dentists and people suffering from tooth aches. Saint Apollonia was martyred for her faith by a mob that beat her to death. This included them knocking out all of her teeth. I am preparing for my Goalie's first loose tooth so here you are this is definitely #WorthRevisit with Theology is a Verb and Reconciled to You.

Saint Apollonia: Tooth Fairy Traditions

Saint Apollonia is the Patron Saint of dentistry and tooth problems. I have seen so many cute ideas where parents have made dolls in the likeness of Saint Apollonia to hold their children's babyteeth until the "tooth fairy" comes and replaces it with a dollar or two. I hope one day I will be blessed with a little girl so I can make a Saint Apollonia doll one day but for now I have two boys that were not excited about making a doll. I decided to make our own unique tradition. I, of course, took a picture of Little Man's smile with his missing tooth and wrote a cute prayer that I found at Crafty in Coffeeland. I will place the picture next to his Guardian Angel Candle and we will recite the prayer and put his tooth on the picture. Maybe I will be a little more creative with the next tooth... until then...

Saint Apollonia, pray for us!
