Itâ€™s International Fairy Day! Today is a day for fairy
believers young and old to celebrate the stories, magic, and history of
the Fair Folk. For centuries, fairies have been an important part of
Celtic culture. In all of the ancient legends, these mythological
creatures are described as intelligent, mischievous, and magical. They
have the ability to fly and cast spells, and they live in â€śTĂr na nĂ“g,â€ť
the land of eternal youth. Mortals donâ€™t often see fairies because of
the division between the two worlds, but sightings can occur at twilight
or during Beltane, Mid-Summerâ€™s Eve, or All Hallowâ€™s Eve.
In his 1904 play Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie wrote that when the
first baby laughed, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and that was
the beginning of fairies. International Fairy Day is the perfect
opportunity to relive your childhood fantasies and celebrate the joy and
magic of the fairy world. Read a classic fairy tale, build a fairy house, or take a stroll through the woods. You never know when you might stumble across something magical!
