Fairy. … A fairy (also fata, fay, fey, fae, fair folk; from faery, faerie, “realm of the fays”) is a type of mythical being or legendary creature in European folklore, a form of spirit, often described as metaphysical, supernatural, or preternatural. (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

If you believe in fairies, you’re not alone.

Stories of the fair folk date back to ancient times. They have been shared throughout most cultures in some form or another. Be they friendly little sprites that flutter around or be they evil flesh-eating demons, the Fae have both delighted young children and scared even the bravest of adults. 

As I do my research… (maybe for a new book ~ maybe not) I find these legendary creatures to be breathtaking and terrifying all at once. 

Tell me… do you believe in fairies and if you do what is your favorite Fae folklore?
