Fairies come in many forms, some are minute creatures, others quite ugly some can fly, and all can appear and disappear at will. Fairies are supernatural beings or nature spirits, one of the most beautiful and important of mythological concepts. Belief in fairies is ancient and widespread, and similar ideas concerning them are found in primitive as well as civilized societies. Fairies have been celebrated in folklore, stories, songs, and poems. The term fairy comes from the Latin fata and fatum (fate), and in Middle English implied enchantment, or an enchanted land and its inhabitants. Fairies were often said to be invisible, usually of smaller stature than humans. It was believed they could be helpful to humans but might be dangerous and evil if offended. They were often considered just mischievous and whimsical in a childlike manner but were believed to have magical powers. On Troop Night, Halloween, the fairies gather together then troop out into the human world in a long, long procession. If theyre light fae, they spend the hours from midnight to dawn granting favours and doing good deeds. If theyre dark they pull pranks and create havoc.
