A magical day to celebrate with kids…
It’s the day for wishes to come true, for humans to put aside ‘the cynicism of the modern world’ and believe in Fairies for a day.
Whether you see them as small winged tenders of the deep natural places of the earth, or as tall stately figures with fair skin and hair, there’s one thing for certain. Much of the world has been absolutely captured by the notion of Fairies. These creatures have been the subject of children’s Fairy tales and even supernatural romances. Fairy Day celebrates these incredible mythological creatures that have seized the imagination of people everywhere, and their diverse history.
History of Fairy Day
Fairies have existed in just about every culture over the world, though they may have been called by different names. What they have in common, no matter where you go, is that they are spirits that inhabit the world around us and often operate by strange and often odd laws. That’s about where the similarities end, and where the amazingly diverse concepts that are the Fairies begin.
We’ve all heard of the winged Fairies that flit around flowers and are always drawn like butterfly winged cherubs of slight form. ‘Tinker Bell’ is likely one of the most well-known. Did you know that Dwarves and Gnomes are also part of the Fairy family? These creatures were common among the Germanic folk, and especially those who worked in mines and mountains. Knockers were a form of fairy that lived in mines and would ‘knock’ to warn miners of pending cave-ins and danger, hence their name.
Different cultures described many forms of Fairies, where they could be helpful, magical or devious and some could cause harm.
The red-hatted gnomes that occupy so many people’s gardens were fashioned after creatures from the far north. These quiet and unassuming creatures were part of the dark northern forests, and spent their time living near the homes of humans, which they’d sometimes help out.
How to Celebrate Fairy Day
Celebrate Fairy Day by participating in one of the many festivals and celebrations that have formed around the world to honour these mythical creatures. Or you can have a little festival at home by having a fairy themed party with your friends and family! My daughter absolutely loved dressing up when she was younger, Fairy costumes were a big part of that.
If you have not been there yet, visit The Fairy Garden at Hahndorf… Kaija loved it when she was younger & we still visit from time to time. Or call Sarah at A Sprinkle of Magic. She’s a friend of Tish’s from our office.
