39 Fairy Instagram Captions

You don't have to be a little kid to appreciate how awesome fairies are! After all, we grew up with them in our books, TV shows, and movies, and they're always a lot of fun. To celebrate the mythical creature, we have created a list of fairy Instagram captions!

Did you know that it is hard to pinpoint where and when fairies actually originated because, while the term "fairy" only originated in the Middle Ages in Europe, other fairy-like beings existed around the world before that. For example, there were the nymphs of Greece, jinn in Arabic mythology, the Sanskrit Gandharva, along with mythical beings in the Arctic, Samoa, and the Americas.

Modern depictions of fairies are typically based on Irish folklore, though they usually have some liberties taken to make them more fun for pop culture. Which makes perfect sense! From Tinkerbell to Pixie in X-Men to Sookie from True Blood, fairies are an amazing addition to pop culture. To honor them, here are 39 fairy Instagram captions!
