I really thought this whole unicorn thing would be a phase. But no, here we are five years in to yet another holiday cycle with wishlists filled with fantasy.

My 6-year-old is so serious about this topic that she specifically requested a “unicorn AND alicorn birthday party.”

I…didn’t realize there was a difference.

  1. Oh Meredith. Have you never watched My Little Pony? An Alicorn is a Unicorn but with… wait for it… Wings!! So yeah, like Twilight Sparkle after she becomes a princess. You need to binge watch a few seasons.

  2. It’s not a phase. My husband and I had to have a special conference with my daughter’s kindergarten teacher because the school was concerned about her insistence that unicorns were real. She is now 22(!!) and I am buying her unicorn themed lamps etc for her own home! I clicked on this article as soon as I saw the title.
