#AtoZChallenge: Changelings

C

This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.

I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes.  It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants.  🙂

 

 

Today’s creature is Changelings. Folklore has them being the offspring of fairies, trolls, elves, or other legendary creatures. The legend is they are left in the place of human children.  In Scottish folklore, it’s believed that children were taken as replacements for fairy children.  In other lore, the belief was that human milk was a necessity for fairy children to survive.  There is so much lore out there about Changelings, it makes me wonder if they aren’t walking among us even now.
