February 26th National Tell A Fairy Tale Day

Fairy Tales have been a part of most of our lives, either told to us by our parents or on tv. They are stories meant to teach us valuable lessons. They teach us about heroes and villains and what makes each of them who they are. They are stories handed down over the ages and honestly, the meaning doesn’t vary all that much even though the times do. Some of the Fairy Tales even defeat themselves as in the Grimm Brothers Fairy Tales which were meant to scare children. Because the brothers did not like children!

How to celebrate – Tell your child a fairy tale. Create your own fairy tale. Make a list of all the Fairy Tales you can remember without looking them up.

National Tell A Fairy Tale Day – February 26th

Fairy Tales are oral history handed down over time. Of course, they are embellished a little and a lot of the truth may have been removed, they mostly started from some real source. For example, Snow White is based on the life of Margarette von Waldek who lived in Germany where her family was involved in mining. Children were used to go down the narrow passages, becoming the Dwarves in the Fairy Tale. Waldek fell in love with a Prince but died before they could be united.

How to celebrate – Read a Fairy Tale. Study the real truth behind your favorite Fairy Tales. Make someone dream come true.
