If I hear one more person say or refer to a “Fairy on top of the Christmas Tree” I will seriously kick off!!!
Its not a Fairy, its an Angel.
I don’t care if you are the most dyed-in-the-wool atheist, there is no excuse for deliberately trying to rewrite culture.
Have you ever been to California and visited Los Fairies?
Unless you believe in Fairies but not Angels there is no logic to it.
I’d suggest if the person makes the comment believes in neither, then their statement just becomes ignorant. They believe them both to be fictional characters.
Would it be acceptable for them to confuse other fictional characters?
Try talking to someone about Shakespeare and mention Macbeth’s speech “To be, or not to be…”
You would be branded an idiot for confusing fictional characters that have entered popular culture.
Regardless to whether you believe in Angels (or Fairies) its pretty stupid of you to confuse the two.
