I completely support fairy day-- in fact it is my favorite day of the year. It is so much fun!
I think it helps children (and adults) hone their eyes and senses to subtler aspects of life and nature. Our culture is always advertising BIGGER, better, and highly stimulating experiences but to quieten all of that cultural programing and to give a child some space to look a little bit closer while they simultaneously create a world where they can play and co-create is such an amazing gift!
For those opposed to the word "magic" here is a working definition that I like:
Magic is the act of changing our perspectives and the way we view things. It is allowing ourselves to open up to more possibilities than the obvious thus affecting our life outcomes and experiences of people and places.
Again, I love your fairy day Darlene. Yippie!
