#AtoZChallenge: Fairies

F

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.  🙂

 

Fairies are the topic of the day. The Fae are creatures linked to European folklore. They can resemble various creatures from other mythologies. Some traditions use the term wee folk to describe the Fae. They are described as looking like humans and having magical powers. It is said that cold iron can be used to defeat the Fae. It is like poison to them. One thing that is common in the lore that stems from Celtic nations is that the Fae were driven into hiding by humans.

Some of my favorite books or shows are The Southern Vampire series by Charlaine Harris, True Blood, and Supernatural. They have each featured the Fae at some point or another.
