Apparently I’ve had elves partying on my lawn and I wasn’t invited. There’s a “fairy ring” growing in the grass and it gives me that spooky feeling.
Fairy rings also occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. According to the folklore, a fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he or she may be able to capture it.
