Every year, fairies will take some time out of their busy schedule to go back and visit the Family Tree in Fairy Valley. It’s like a little holiday for your fairy! They will pack up their fairy case with all they need for a couple of days away and head back to the Family Tree for a little rest and relaxation. It is important for fairies to take a little rest time as house fairies work ever so hard for their humans – don’t you think yours deserves a little break?
Your fairy will tell you when they are heading off for a couple of days and this can vary from country to country but most fairies prefer to go back around July or August. It could even be at the same time you are going on your holiday! Each fairy will have made a reservation before they go so they know there is room for them when they arrive. We have been told the tree can sleep up to a million fairies a night so everyone gets to spend at least two nights but no more than four.
While there in the massive, magical Family Tree guarded and protected by the friendly giant Nordman himself, fairies can enjoy sleeping during the night and playing throughout the day. Can you imagine what a great feeling it would be to play in the sun when you normally sleep all day and work all night?!
Fairies can enjoy a huge range of activities like:
Please make sure your fairy makes their Retreat this year and spends some time to rest and relax back at the Family Tree. Your fairy will feel fabulous after their break! Please check with them which dates suit and follow the steps below to book their place.
If you want your little fairy friend to take a four-day retreat simply follow these instructions:
Once you have sent all these details, hopefully your reservation will be successful you should receive your fairy’s ticket back. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the volume of applications we expect, it may take a few days to receive your ticket.
PLEASE NOTE: IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOUR FAIRY TAKES A COPY OF THEIR TICKET WITH THEM WHEN GOING ON RETREAT.
It is also very important that you understand that your fairy will be gone for the dates you have booked them in to the retreat. Also your fairy will require travel time to and from the retreat. The Family Tree is located in Fairy Valley, which is smack bang in the centre of Ireland, so to figure out how long it will take your fairy to get to Ireland, simply find out how long it takes to fly to Ireland and this is very roughly how long it will take your fairy – although fairies are often much faster than planes. You must remember your fairy will be away from you for more than four days and nights if travelling to and from. Another interesting fact about fairies is that fairies very rarely will fly over oceans as they would need to stop regularly and rest and oceans do not provide anywhere to stop without getting very wet. FAIRIES CANNOT GET THEIR WINGS WET AT ALL, it’s disastrous and will stop your fairy being able to fly for quite a while so they will travel across land but they are significantly faster than planes so it means they get to their destinations much quicker.
