IT'S NATIONAL TELL A FAIRY TALE DAY
The history of Fairy Tales is rooted in truth, but also, meant to entertain. Often told by travelers or in the manner we would associate with 'campfire tales', fairy tales are also a means to help guide children into proper behavior. Oral histories, myths, and legends, these were retold stories often intended to teach a lesson or moral desired by society. They often had different renditions depending on the geographical area you visited due to cultural differences, but mostly rang the same overall. And, with time, they grew into more mystical and fantastical tellings, with magic, mythological creatures, and more.
Today, let's enjoy the tradition of great storytelling by indulging in some of the most beloved fairy tales as well as finding some new ones!
