Fairy tales, sometimes called magic tales are a type of short story that usually contains mythical creatures, magic, villains and often times royalty. While they fall under the umbrella of folklore, they are not to be confused with fables and legends despite often being a source of their inspiration.
In more recent times, they are usually used to describe some type of happy ending, usually used in a romantic setting or context, and while we all know that fairy tales aren't real, that doesn't stop us from wanting the love story that we have seen countless times on our televisions, in the books that we read and on the big screen.
From popular stories like "Cinderella," "Aladdin," "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Little Mermaid" to not so well known ones like "The Frog Princess," and "Looking for a Bride," these fairy tales all portray an image of what romance should be and we want it to be.
