International Fairy Day - June 24th, 2020
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 fae begin.
J.M. Barrie's 1904 play, Peter Pan, said that fairies came from the first babies' laugh, which broke into a thousand pieces. Fairies are usually portrayed as being dwarflike in stature—some may be the size of humans, but some may be only a few inches tall.
International Fairy Day, reputedly started by artist Jessica Galbreth, celebrates fairies, the mythological creatures of folklore.
Here are some magical ways to celebrate Fairy Day, no matter where you live and what you believe in.
Build a fairy garden
Gardens have never been more loved than now. Still, it’s easy for the creative juices to dry up after weeks of being locked down. A fairy garden is an excellent way to celebrate the event and indulge in the majesty that is Fairy Day. Families will enjoy how much the kids love pretending to be Tinker Bell, while singletons and couples can brush up on their DIY skills.
Read a fairy tale
Reading is about getting lost in different worlds, and there isn’t a world more creative than Narnia or Neverland.
