Yesterday I was adding lots of little Christmas Fairies & Angels to my online shop when I got to wondering what the collective nouns were for groups of fairies. A Flock? A Flight? A Fancy? A Frolic? A Flutter maybe? I thought any of those would be sweet but I decided to look it up & found that it is a 'herd' of fairies! Now, I don't know about you, but I don't think that fits very well! Horses, sheep & elephants assemble in herds...but fairies? Doesn't sound nearly dainty enough! Suggests a group of fairies clumping around in big boots rather than flittering about in glittery slippers & sprinkled in fairy dust. Which would you choose?
Angels on the other hand are grouped into a Choir, a Host or a Chorus, all of which seem quite appropriate!
