Numerous superstitions surround Easter and Good Friday. One is in celebration of Christ's resurrection, the sun "dances" as it comes up on Easter morning. If looked at through a darkened lens, it is said to bear the imprint of a lamb, an image associated with Christian mythology. If the wind blows on Easter, it will blow throughout the year and that a shower of rain promises a good crop of grass but little hay.
You know how it is a custom to buy new clothes for Easter. Well, that tradition came from the fact that Lent precedes Easter. At one time, the same set of clothes is worn throughout that time which are discarded for a new outfit on Easter Sunday. Of course there is a superstition tied to this custom. Those who don't wear at least one new thing risk having their clothes spoiled by birds, spat upon by passing dogs or their eyes pecked out by crows. Ouch!
Children born on Easter are said to be blessed with good fortune. Those born on Good Friday are doomed to be unlucky. Holy water saved from Easter is said to be an effective cure for many illnesses.
"Alas the fairy is fake but my interest and belief has allowed me to create a work of art that is convincing and magical. I was also interested to see if fairy folklore is still a valid belief in modern society and I am pleased to say that yes it is! I have had more response from believers than I ever thought possible."
