Definition of Fairy

fair•y, faer•y, faer•ie (fare•ee) n., pl. fair•ies, faer•ies (1) A tiny supernatural being in human form with wings, depicted as clever, mischievous, and possessing magickal powers. (2) True faeries are members of the Tylwyth Teg or the Daoine Sidhe. (3) Wiccan tradition practiced by Victor Anderson and the late Gwydion Pendderwen, and their students. Sometimes called Old Faery. (4) See Elemental. (5) From the Latin term for "fate" (fata), faeries (or fairies) are a "host of supernatural beings and spirits who occupy a limbo between earth and heaven" (Guiley). This is in recognition of the skill faeries had in predicting and even controlling human destiny. Faeries could be either good or evil creatures, and at various points in history have been confused with witches and demons (6) "Goblins and fairies, ugly, menacing little creatures who were believed to live in underground or in dark places, had their origin in the pre-Celtic past. Like leprechauns, brownies and pixies, they stand for the evil spirits that were once thought to be present at the vigil of Samhain and later on the eve of Halloween. Goblins, also known as ‘fairies’, are believed to have started out as ghosts of kings and heroes, with perhaps a touch of divinity in them. fairies were not exactly the figment of the imagination. They were a dark-skinned people who lived in Northern Europe and the British Isles. In Britain, little people, who were about 4 ˝ feet high and wore green clothing that blended with the fields and forests lived in hiding in forests or near forts and towns. The green clothing they were helped protect them from those conquerors who continually stalked them. The chief defense of the little people was to shoot little stone arrows known as ‘elf bows’. Because of they’re cunning and swift ways and their size, the Celts thought these small people were fairies, who were believed to be evil. Through the centuries fairies were believed to have been transform into elves and goblins."- RCA
