Dons' musings about O Fallon Mo : Tell a Fairy Tale Day, Another Weird or Bizarre Holiday,

Tell a Fairy Tale Day, Another Weird or Bizarre Holiday,

Tell a Fairy Tale Day, Another Weird or Bizarre Holiday,

So what is “Tell a Fairy Tale Day”?

Fairy“Tell a Fairy Tale Day” will always be found on February 26th.

Today is a great opportunity to read your kids.  That is if the kids are around.  If they aren't around, it’s perfectly okay to read a fair tale alone.  We all know that everybody loves a good fairy tale, including a macho, macho man.

To qualify as a fairy tale, a story does not have to begin with "Once upon a time.....".  But, they normally do.  It is a requirement that the story has a happy ending.  You know the one that says “and they lived happily ever after”.  There's no better ending.

On Fairy Tale Day, I would recommend that you get a Fairytall mug of hot chocolate (with marshmallows), cozy up under a blanket with the kids and read a fairy tale book.  Libraries and schools will often mark this day with special fairy tale readings and story hours.

It's Tell a Fairy Tale Day.  This is a day that Fairy Tales are made of (and for).

Well, I haven't read one since I was a kid, but since it is a holiday, great excuse to be one again.  Goldilocks and the  3 bears, here I come!

Hello Cheryl,

I would say that Harris County, TX is a nice area of the country too.  I lived there many years ago.  Have a GREAT weekend.

Diane,

I don't know what the weather is there in the Dallas area but it is cool enough here to bundle up and settle in and have a nice read.

Enjoy your weekend ma'am.

One of my favorite is the "The Red Shoes" by Hans Christian Anderson!

And I am not ashamed of the fact that I love fairy tale stories!

Ralph,

I kinda sorta like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  It could be because my twin brother from a different mother is in the story, Dopey.

Yes indeed, the happy ending is the key! And living happily ever after is a good thing!

This is a fascinating event Don, and it would be so educational to sit in on it and listen, even as an adult.

Hi Don - Once upon a day there was a real estate market that was fair to the seller and the buyer...

Wow, strains credulity that fairy tale:)
