Although when usually post my Thursday Theories, it is Thursday for the majority of people who read my Blog. It actually comes out on early Friday morning for myself. So while this will be the majorities Wednesday, this actually be on my Thursday for once!
The reason for my “earlier” post today though, is because June the 24th is International Fairy Day.
A day dedicated to the mythological sprites that fill our fairytales and imaginations! Fairies have existed in just about every culture around the world — though they differ from tale to tale.
While the term fairy goes back only to the Middle Ages in Europe. Analogues to these beings in varying forms appear in both written and oral literature, from the Sanskrit gandharva (semidivine celestial musicians) to the nymphs of Greek mythology and Homer, the jinni of Arabic mythology, and similar folk characters of the Samoans, of the Arctic peoples, and of other indigenous Americans.
There are so many variations of Fairies, good and evil ones. I could probably write a whole paper academic about it. I really want to do like a Fairytale Study Course, but I can’t justify it. I also know a couple of people with fairy gardens, but they live on huge properties and so have the resources and space to make a whole little village. It’s incredibly sweet.
Anyway, there is so much more to Fairies than what I could write in my little blog post, while drinking (haha).
Tomorrow though, embrace your inner Fairy…Whether that’s good or evil, or cheeky ~.^
