Can You Tell A Fairy Tale Today?

Today is Tell A Fairy Tale Day. Although it’s an unofficial holiday, people are encouraged to read, tell, and listen to fairy tales from all over the world.


Usually, fairy tales begin with “Once upon a time…” The tales are short, and may include elves, fairies, and trolls–a magical world.

Although fairy tales were once considered children’s literature, the term is also used when referencing happy events.

So, what should you do to celebrate?
Host a fairy tale party! Tell your guests to come dressed as their favorite fairy tale characters, and be sure to serve fairy tale food such as porridge (Goldilocks and the Three Bears) or peas (The Princess and the Pea.)
And then, collaborate and pen a fairy tale!

What is your favorite fairy tale? Please share your comment below.
