Really? I have been wrong all these years?

 I don't even know why Christmas songs were brought up in conversation the other day but I asked why they call the people of Bethlehem liars in the song "Oh little town of Bethlehem"

My ex looked at me like I was nuts and asked what the hell I was talking about.

The line in the song is

 

"Oh little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie"

 

I thought it was saying how we still see them as liars after all the years. (I was never sure why we were calling them liars in the first place)

 

My ex died laughing at me and then told me that it meant.

How they "lie still" as in sleeping.

Oops. LOL

 

What have you believed since you were a child and didn't realize/learn the truth until you were well into adulthood?

My DH had to tell me that sea horses are real.

I don't really believe him.

My dad told me that corned beef comes from cows that are only fed corn. I just found out like 2 years ago that's not true at all. It's called corned beef because the salting process it goes through is called corning. The sad part is I told my dad and he didn't believe me.

It took me until I was 25 or so (and asking how trees know how old they are) to finally understand the rings in a tree...

Not me, but my sister. She was about 25 at the time. I woke her up and said "up and at 'em". She looks at me and goes, "why is it up and Adam? Why can't it be up and Jennifer (that's her name)?" I about died laughing and couldn't believe she had always thought it was saying Adam.
