The belief in Fairies is common in many parts of the world. The term Fairy is commonly believed to be European specifically French word Faeire. The word derives from the Latin Fata meaning The Fates. The Fates refers to the belief in three European Mythological Goddesses. For hundreds of years people have traditionally left offerings of bread and milk in the woods when they believed Fairies were living.
Despite the eventual transition from a Pagan to Christian society in Europe the belief in Fairies lives on. One manifestation of this is the creation of Fairy Doors and Fairy Gardens. Some of these installations are fun and some are an expression of a sincere belief that we live side by side with Fairies. Recently Fairy Doors have moved into more urban settings, in homes and also shop doorways.
Fairy doors encourage children of all ages to use their imagination and curiosity. Your child might wish to leave gifts or the fae folk such as coins, sweets or flowers. You might even wish to decorate your door with miniature gnomes, elves or fairies. e Ready painted doors are available in many colours, or perhaps you'd rather an unpainted door to colour yourself or leave natural. There are endless ways to decorate your fairy door - lichen, snow, shells, tinsel, wreaths and much much more. Why not create a little path leading up to it?
Doors can be attached to skirting board or mantlepiece (because fairies can fly!) or in the garden to allow fairies safe passage into your home. Perhaps your child can keep a key for their door, so they can visit whenever they wish. You can personalise your door as much as you like using your choice of handle, knocker and letter box - our crystal doorknobs look especially magical and come with their own keys!
Perhaps your fairy doors has direct access to the tooth fairy, so your child can leave their tooth outside it for collection.
