Fairies have been seen throughout many fairy tales over time. I think that it is interesting see where fairies have descended from and how they came into different regions of the world. In Celtic mythology there seems to be a unique place for the world of fairies to come alive within in these tales. I have discovered that fairies came from some of the earlier traditions of the Celts people. These fairies originated from the previous Welsh God and Goddesses. It is interesting that these fairies didn't have what we consider to be the norm appearance of fairies today. They had resembled humans with the exception that they a source of power. (Celtic Mythology). It seems that fairies did not just originate through someones fantastical imagination but through story telling, myths, and legends that were developed by the Celtic people as well. I have discovered throughout my research were fairies come from, regional, but who do they come from? It has been said, according to some Celtic myths, that fairies are derived from Goddess's. A Irish mythical race, Tuatha De Danann is one source of who fairy people came from.
