Fairy rings occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. According to the folklore, a fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he or she may be able to capture it.
I’m sad because there are a lot of mushrooms in my back yard but there were no fairy rings. :(
They can also make you invisible if you walk backwards inside one
There is a lot of mythology about what will happen to you if you mess with fairy rings ;D I AM ALWAYS EXCITED TO SEE FAIRY RING STUFF because it reminds me that i made a comic about that and then I feel really proud.
There’s also stories where a person who enters a fairy ring gets taken away by the fairies and is made to join their dance. If they are returned then what would been hours for the person will have been decades in the outside world.
So yeah, don’t mess with fairy rings.
