If you believe in the mystical and magical world of mythological creatures, and who doesn’t, you’re in luck. Besides Flying Saucer Day, June 24th is also International Fairy Day. While the origins of this “holiday” are unknown, this special day celebrates those very special, diminutive beings with wispy wings and magical powers that leave a trail of fairy dust in their wake.


For centuries, fairies have been an important part of Celtic culture.  In all of the ancient legends, mythological creatures are described as intelligent, mischievous and magical.


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!



Famous Fairies


Many famous fairies have flown into the hearts of both young and old alike.


·         Tooth Fairy – Besides Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy ranks pretty high with the younger crowd. Imagine that wide, toothless smile from the little boy or girl who discovers the Tooth Fairy has made a secret visit during the night and left a little surprise in exchange for a tooth underneath his or her pillow.


·         Tinker Bell - When it comes to fairies, Tinker Bell (Tinkerbell) is probably one of the world’s best known and beloved fairies. “Tink” is the feisty, fictional character from the famous James M. Barrie’s classic, Peter Pan. She also serves as the unofficial mascot of the Walt Disney Company.


·         The Fairy Godmother – First made famous in the story of Cinderella, Fairy Godmothers’ help make all your wishes come true. Everyone needs a Fairy Godmother to watch your back, right? Gather up the kiddies and listen to the story of Cinderella.


·         Sugar Plum Fairy – Based on the story, The Nutcracker and the King of Mice, the Sugar Plum Fairy greets the Prince as he escorts Clara to the Land of Sweets in the famous Nutcracker Ballet.


·         Thumbelina – Watch and listen to Hans Christian Anderson’s tale about a wee fairy no bigger than a thumb.


·         Puck – Prankster Robin Goodfellow, Hobgoblin or Puck was one of the main characters in William Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream.


Do you believe in the magic? Do you enjoy the fantasy and make-believe world of fairies? If you do, then celebrate on June 24!

Run through the grass with bare feet! Better yet, dance and run through the sprinkler!! Make fairy wings and flower wreaths to wear in your hair. Craft a fairy wand with jewels and sparkles (fairies love sparkling things!)
