National Tell a Fairy Tale Day – February 26th
Fairy Tales are created from myths or legends. Most think they were created for children but they weren’t. In fact some are rather gruesome in their original form, cutting off toes to fit in shoes, chopping off the heads of frogs and many included gnomes, mermaids and giants.
The Grimm Brothers, perhaps the most famous fairy tale authors hated children and wanted to scare them by their tales, “Household Tales”.
How to celebrate – Join the Association of Fairy Tales. Check into Count Margarete von Waldeck, the Legend Snow White was created from. Host a Fairy Tale Murder Mystery party.
