Many of us grew with fairy tales. I loved them; love the fact that some are dark, and many have those happy ever after endings we love.
There is such magic about stories passed down the generations, from our parents, grandparents, and beyond. Myth and fiction are mixed together and there are elements of truth from long ago.
Many of the stories can be traced back thousands of years. My favourite has to be Beauty and the Beast. I love the retellings and if you look deeper there is a moral in the story. Beauty is only skin deep, and the real beauty is in our hearts.
A couple of years ago, I wrote an article called Fun Facts about Fairy Tales. Have a look, you’ll be surprised at what you didn’t know.
