I agree with everybody.

It depends on the kind of fairy. Lately there was a brownie.

There are the 7 dwarves.

There are the pretty kind like that shade of pink and turquoise...

Elves are green of course usually

Gnomes wear their red pointy caps.

The possibilities are endless.

I don't see real fairies but I do see visions and I can see what they are doing that way.

The brownie I saw recently was a real person but she was supposed to be playing the part of a brownie.

I think of them as energies and real in their way but not material world real. The world of energy is very real and there are consequences for imbalances. It is important to show a bit of respect towards the pretend fairies who represent real energy that can cause real problems. That is how I do it.

I have heard reports of people who do see them with more then one witness present but I still think they are not material world real, though they can appear that way.

Green - grass-green or leaf-green in particular - is the color most frequently associated with fairies and other magical beings in British and Celtic folklore and early literature. Think of "Sir Gawaine and the Green Knight", leprechauns, elves, and other wee folk who might wear red caps - but also green jackets, the Ballad of Thomas the Rhymer and his riddling encounter with the Queen of Fair Elf-land (she was clad all in green).

Some think that the legends of the Fair Folk are based on the earlier inhabitants of these lands, small dark Celts who were forced west and into caverns ("beneath the hill" - how often does that trope occur in folklore?) after the brawnier blond Anglo-Saxons came in, and who came out at night to forage for food (all those bowls of milk and occasionally bread left on doorsteps for brownies and piskies were not always consumed by the barn cat) - and who wore green for camouflage.

Typical fairy traits included the use of magical ointments and food (herbal medicine and natural hallucinogenics, most likely), love of music and dance (think of the rich heritage of Celtic music and dance which has survived and thrived for so long), ability to cast spells (well, certain personality traits can be quite charming), and having rather pointed features, being slight in build (with a couple of exceptions - dwarfs were stocky, strong little folk), usually small, though some were tall and slender, and so on.

Sadder theories include those of the changelings, said to be fairy babies left in exchange for human children. In reality, many so-called "changelings" were quite human children with trisomies or other birth defects not immediately recognized at birth, and many of these little ones died from neglectful treatment if not outright abuse, designed to lure back the secretly watching fairies so they'd take their changeling child back and leave the "original" human baby in its place.

Interesting stuff here...and some rather convincing theories. I learned all this stuff years ago before and during a study tour featuring folk literature of the British Isles (so-called).
