During the week of Summer Solstice when the veil between our world and the magical Tir na nog fairyland is temporarily lifted, we celebrate the International Fairy Day!

Fairies are an important part of Celtic culture. They are described as mythological, intelligent, mischievous and magical creatures. They can fly, cast spells and live in the land of eternal youth, Tir na nog.

During Fairy Day, on Mid-Summer's Eve, we can spot them at dawn and dusk. Then is when the fairies are most active. 

According to J.M. Barrie, in Peter Pan (1904), "When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a million pieces, and they all went skipping about. That was the beginning of fairies." The fairies are happy, sweet and helpful creatures.

But, a long time ago, around the 12th century or maybe even earlier, fairies weren't sweet and kind, they could be devious and even make men disappear.

It's believed that it was around the time Shakespeare wrote A Midsummer Night's Dream that the fairies acquired their kind and innocent image.

I didnt know fairy day was a thing. So I predict since last year was the year of the unicorn, 2018 is kind of the year of the mermaids so 2019 will be the year of the fairies.
