Spring Fairy Fun Day – March 21, 2023

Spring Fairy Fun Day is celebrated on March 21. When a holiday has fairies and spring involved, you know the day is happiness guaranteed. Today celebrates the lightness of spring and its mythical fairies. The idea is to sprinkle a bit of magic wherever you go — become the fairy that you or everyone else needs. Put on a flowy dress. Lie on the grass. Gift flowers to all your friends. Play some favorite records and dance, even if it’s in your living room. The essence of springtime is good vibes, so indulge in whatever brings your soul joy.

History of Spring Fairy Fun Day

We don’t know who founded Spring Fairy Fun Day. Our research says the day is a celebration of all things spring-related. The magic of nature inspires many poets, storytellers, and bards. Different seasons can evoke an equally different range of emotions. Springtime, in particular, is always beautiful! When the world wakes up from winter slumber to new life. There’s hope and renewed energy in the air — a buzz of activity and adrenaline. Each flower, bud, and blade of grass symbolizes exciting possibilities.

How did fairies come into the picture? Good question. Just as animals, birds, and humans welcome the arrival of spring, the fairy folk are supposedly celebrating too. According to legend, the spring fairy heralds the arrival of spring and the end of winter. She’s the first of the seasonal fairies to arrive in the forest. As the spring fairy flies past, trees and flowers swing in happiness — shaking off any remnants of snow. A band of merry spring animals follows the pixie through the woods. They’re bleary-eyed from winter slumber, but happy to be finally awake.

Whether you believe in fairies or not, there’s no denying the magic of spring – a season of new beginnings and lightness. Channel your innerspring fairy today. Sprinkle some magic everywhere. Paint, draw, or create a work of art. Fill empty nooks in the house with flowers. Start a project you’ve always dreamt of doing — perhaps a class, a new job, or an adventure overseas. There’s no specific way to celebrate the day except by bringing joy to yourself and others around you.
