The Fairy Tale Story: Fairy Tales do not normally come from high origins, rather the fairytale are the peasant stories they are the folklore of daily life, passed on for generations, and from village to village. This is what makes folktales so interesting for these old wives tales as they where once called have changed and passed hand so many times that they have in essince become a mean of humanity, a conglomerate of the emotions, thoughts and experiences. As peasant tales the fairytale is a snapshot of the way normal people lived at the various times of our life, making them an often stark and harsh stories. Stories of child abandonment, lust, fear, cannibalism, and hatred. However these stories are also tales of success and love, they are stories of hope.
 For the folktales of the past are the stories to entertain the peasants in a way that was very easy for them to relate to. Lets not exaggerate the reality of such stories then, for as we watch the horror stories of today paraded unrealistically in front of us we must remember that stories are not real, they merely resemble reality, and the potential experiences, fears, and dreams and our lives. is intended to be a place to do more then simply read fairytales but as a place to come to an understanding of their meaning, and history. As time goes on we will write articles on the fairy tales of the world.
