Reason to Celebrate

Sunday, February 26th is “National Tell a Fairy Tale Day”! According to , what were once oral histories, myths and legends retold around the fire or by traveling storytellers, have been written down and become known the world over as fairy tales. Many have a basis in truth, and most were shared as a way to encourage good behavior in children. And in our day, most of these stories would not be deemed appropriate for children-too gruesome!!!

Check out some fairy tales from any of our locations and make February 26th a “happily ever after” kind of day!
