Also it is the perfect time of year in the UK when it is cold and gets dark early to curl up with favourite stories and books and again fairytales play a huge role here.
The one thing I wish I could wish away is the image of fairytales being twee. They are NOT. Just look at what Hans Christen Andersen wrote! Also I'd like to get rid of the "it's just a fairytale" statement that people come up with sometimes. There's nothing "just" about being a fairytale.
Fairytales contain truths, show up humanity for what it can be like, and can be scathing about greed and unkindness. Justice can be on the rough side too! So no unfair dismissal of fairytales then? I think that's a good wish for 2019!
Happy New Year!
