    Green-blue light behind the dogberries - fairies.
    With two TV networks in the US running scary fairy stories, can Newfoundland and Labrador become part of a trend?

    Fairies are found in two main areas: bogs and woods. People tell tales of being led astray by fairies while they are blueberry picking on the barrens, often during a fog. Others recount becoming lost and traveling in circles in the forest due to the actions of fairies.

    In Upper Island Cove they are said to come along a special road called "fairy path." There is also a "fairy ring," a peculiar circular growth of trees which they are said to utilize in some of their ceremonies, located in Harbour Grace.

    Their existence has been described in this manner:

    "Fairies move from one country to another. They are after you if they're near you, and you can be sure they're always near. You do not have to harm them in any way; they come for no reason. Anywhere man can step; a fairy can also step. They do not live in any particular spot. No one has ever found the exact location where they live. No one can tell if it's under a bush, in a tree--no one knows! Also, no one can tell if they eat, drink, or sleep. How a fairy lives is a mystery."

    One person has offered an explanation for the lack of fairies in today's Newfoundland. She they have been driven further and deeper in the woods due to the noise and bright lights of modern civilization.

      If you go down to the woods today
      You're sure of a big surprise
      If you go down to the woods today
      You'd better go in disguise ...

      Well, I guess, it might work for fairies as well as Teddy Bears. :-) There'll be a lot of little ones in disguise tonight, anyway. :-)

      If you go down to the woods today
      The fairies are waiting there.
      If you go down to the woods today
      Be careful what you wear.

      For every fairy that ever there was
      Is gathering there for certain because
      Today is the day
      That spirits come play
      With humans!!
