Scottish fairy tale stories helped lift the nation from a long-term economic depression and lifted thousands of Scots out of poverty and poverty-era unemployment.
Scottish fairy tale festivals had been on the decline until the 1950s, when they were a huge success.
In Scotland, the fairy tale festival was called the Gaelic Festival of Scotland.
It was started by the King Edward VII of England in 1564.
When the King was assassinated, the festival was taken over by the Scottish Parliament and continued until 1707, when the Queen and her family relocated to Edinburgh and Scotland became part of the United Kingdom.
Since then, Scotland has been a vibrant, cosmopolitan, multicultural nation with a diverse, international economy.
As the first official celebration of the Scottish Fairy Tale Festival in 1667, the Scots won the right to use the Gaelo-Uighur name for their festival.
After Queen Victoria and her husband King George VI were married, Scotland became an independent nation and in 1903 the first ever Fairy Tale Day was held.
Today, the first and most iconic Scottish fairy story is the classic story of Astrid and Arwen.
Astrid was a fair maiden of noble birth and beauty who was the princess of Cairndur, the land of the fairy folk.
Arwen, the daughter of a dragon, was a gentle, beautiful, innocent girl.
They were married in the great hall of Cernunnos, the town in the North West of Scotland, at the age of 14.
The wedding day was celebrated by dancing, singing and dancing again.
Scotland’s Fairy Tale Days are celebrated in March and June each year.
On the first of those days in June, it was the feast of the Holy Grail, the Holy Spirit and the Grail, which is considered the best drink in the world.
Celebrations are also held every spring and autumn in Scotland, but in recent years the number of people participating has fallen due to an increasing number of cases of coronavirus.
There are a number of cultural and social celebrations around the country every year.
