My Favorite…Fairytale

My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive.


Fairytale

I like so many of the fairytales, and I know someone is going to say something today that I didn’t even think about.

I always loved the story of The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen. The concept of a beautiful half-girl, half-fish being fascinated me. Perhaps because I’m a Pisces and naturally drawn to water. Perhaps because I pretended I was a mermaid.

I remember watching the 1975 film as a child, as well as the Disney animated version. I watched it so many times I broke the VHS. 😦 While I don’t like Hans Christian Andersen’s ending, now that I’m older I can understand his reasoning for telling the tale better. It can be an awful thing to want for something and disobey your parents so defiantly. That element of parental protection can be so powerful.

Which version do I like better? Of course the Disney version.

What is your favorite fairytale?

  1. This is so wonderful Charlie. I recently wrote a post about my favorite fairytales. Little Mermaid is one of my favourites. Another favourite is definitely Lion King 🙂

  2. The Little Mermaid is definitely a great one. And I too watched it many times growing up. But my favorite is definitely Beauty and the Beast. I just always loved that one so much.
    Thanks for signing up and sharing your favorite.
