Newfoundland Fairies

Rooted in Newfoundland's traditions are fairies.

Fairies are believed to be little creatures. They have also been been children, adults, glowing lights and even animals.

They are known to lead you astray.

Fairies can change people. Or become physical and hit you with things such as sticks, balls of wool and fish bones.

Newfoundlander's have told stories of picking berries then hear fairy music, become entranced and lose their way in the woods; days later they will return home, not knowing what happened.

Folklore says that you can protect yourself by keeping bread in your pockets. This will ward off fairies.

Oh and they don't have wings!
