The fairies are ready for Halloween

The fairies are ready for Halloween

Witches and broomsticks, bug eating bats, and spooky black cats! It can only mean one thing…Halloween is coming!

We don’t usually think of fairies as Halloween creatures, but 31st October is when Samhain, the Celtic festival of the summer's end was celebrated. The Celts believed fairies and spirits came out of hiding and walked amongst them.

On Samhain Eve, the fairies could be found dancing with ghosts, playing pranks, and causing mischief. But watch out - if you upset them, they may have brought nasty weather, spoiled your crops, or kidnapped you to Fairyland - although, that is a treat as the tricks and pranks they play there are the most fun of all!

Get in the festive spirit and add some spooky touches to your fairy door with our new Halloween accessories.
