Today is Fae Nation’s 1st birthday!
The site launched in May 2006, with the aim of bringing the Faerie community the best the world of Faerie has to offer. Since then we have grown and grown and will continue to do so for, I hope, many years into the future.
I just want to say a huge Thank You to every one that reads Fae Nation, and all those who have offered support and encouragement over the last year. I hope you will join me in celebrating, and continue to visit Fae Nation for your daily faerie-fix!
Faery Wishes and Butterfly Kisses,

Crossroads have always regarded as special places, with many superstitions and legends associated with them. Often suicides and murderers were buried or hung in gibbets at lonely crossroads so their restless ghosts would be confused and not know which direction to take, thus preventing them from coming back to harm the living. In Iceland, people believe that the elves move house on New Year’s Eve. Mortals may intercept them at crossroads, in the hope the elves will bribe them with food and treasure to let them pass.
Best Wishes from all at Fae Nation as we stand on the threshold of 2007.Filed under Faerylore, General | Comment (0)
