Fairy Lights

“Puck” from Wikipedia

In English folklore,Puck is a mythological Fairy or mischievous nature sprite. Puck is also a generalized personification of land spirits. In more recent times, the figure of Robin Goodfellow is identified as a puck.

The Old English puca is a kind of half-tamed woodland sprite, leading folk astray with echoes and lights in nighttime woodlands (like the German and Dutch“Weisse Frauen” and “Witte Wieven” and the French“Dames Blanches,” all “White Ladies”), or coming into the farmstead and souring milk in the churn.

“Origin of Fairies” from Timeless Myths

Today, when we think of fairies, we often visualise them as tiny, supernatural beings with wings and glowing with uncommon light in today’s children fairy tales. And they also possessed some sorts of strange magical powers, like Tinklebell in the story of Peter Pan or the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella. The modern fairies, between the 18th and 20th century, comes from oral tradition before they were transmitted into writing.
