What is the difference between FAIRY and FAERY?
Why do some people spell it one way, and others spell it another??
Here is what I have discovered - and this is how I explain it to my children.
A FAIRY is often a cute fantastical winged creature - think Disney Fairy here. I associate this type of fairy with my kids mostly. They are happy-go-lucky, helpful beings. At times mischevious - but nothing to be frightened of. I remeber reading somewhere that a fairy is the Victorian era's attemp tp "prettify" the more wicked faery.

Regardless of which fae you associate with, treat them with kindness - leave treats (seeds, berries, sugar, corn meal) in the garden - worst-case senario (if you don't believe in the fae), you've left a yummy treat for the birds :)
