While the origin of the word Pixie is unknown we do know these mischievous beings are taken very seriously in Cornwall and Devon. They are small, and wear what they can find for clothes, but love a bit of finery when provided. While they can create trouble, they are also known for blessings and take great care of the forests where they reside. Some confuse pixies for sprites or faeries, don’t make that mistake. The pixies are not to be tangled with, they drove the faeries out of Buckland St. Mary.
Pixy are known for distracting children, enticing them into joining their games, and helping needy widows with housework. Don’t be deceived though, if you aren’t careful their love of tricks may get you “pixy-led”, losing your way. If this happens to you remember to turn your coat inside out to help recover your sense of direction.
