Tell a Fairy Tale Day

Sprout: !!!
Did you know that Tuesday, February 26th, is a holiday? It is; it's Tell a Fairy Tale Day.

I'm thinking of coming up with an original tale and posting it. There are only a couple of days left, so I won't do anything long or elaborate. Nevertheless, as a lover of fairy tales, I think I should do something to mark the occasion.

Anyone want to play along?  Write something original or put a spin on an old tale?

Funny, I did not know, but I have been thinking of fairy tales and tellers of such tales for sometime now.

Even retold and Estonian one on Tumblr:

And I am waiting eagerly to read what You are going to tell!

Cruel brothers! But there always seems to be some deep cruelty in fairy tales, doesn't there?

Don't look forward to it too much; I don't want you to be disappointed. :P

Yeah, I almost didn't say anything about it when I realized how little time remained until the holiday.

A retelling is great. The holiday is after all "Tell a Fairy Tale" not WRITE one. :P
