Midsummer's Day occurs later this week, and you know what that means -- the fairies are restless! Folklore tells of great celebrations as fey folk, sprites and pixies dance around the fairy rings on every barrow beneath the midsummer moon.
Happen across them, even by accident, whatever you do, don't step on any mushrooms or you might make them angry. You could find yourself whisked off to fairyland, their captive forever!
Pictured below is Sânziene dancing honoring the fairies during the Cricău Festival in Romania. (Not to far from Janos's castle in the Carpathian Mountains, by the way.) This celebration takes place annually on June 24th.
