← Geoffrey Crawley, 83, Dies; Gently Deflated a Fairy Hoax

“When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies”

“Every time a child says ‘I don’t believe in fairies’ there is a little fairy somewhere that falls down dead”

Once every year I really believed these things and clapped my hands as loudly as I could – just as once every year I believed in baby Jesus amid the cows and the asses. On the whole I liked the first story better.
