Where Do Fairies come from? How many different kinda Are they?

Where Do  Fairies come from? How many different kinda
Fairies are they Really?
Celtic Fairy
Celtic Fairy
Celtic Fairies may be seen as the clever, mischievous and capable of assisting or harassing human endeavour. And English human translate phenomena. They have dozens of language that they can understand, from Irish, Scottish, Gaelic, Manx, Welsh, cornish and Breton. More confusingly they also can understand ancient Celtic Myth Legend Saga and Folklore; Celtic concepts of all different kinds of fairies of that too. Many 
characters form depict diminutive or pygmy persons. These Celtic Fairies generally are often invisible or can become so at will often by donning a magic cap. They prefer to live underground, especially under hills,caves,burrows, mounds or heaps of stones...
Another common theme found among the Celtic Fae is described among the 
fairies race is of diminutive people who have been driven into hiding by the invading of human kind. Yes us HUMANS! The Celtic Fae came to as another 
race, or possibly spirits and were believed to live in an Otherworld that was variously described as existing 
underground, in hidden hills, and mostly ancient burial mounds. A less-common belief was 
that the fairies were actually humans; one folktale recounts how a woman had hidden some of her 
Celtic Fairy
children form God, and then looked for them in vain, because they had become the hidden people ,
the fairies. This is parallel to a more developed tale of the origin of the Scandinavian huldra Creature.
I found that in the very old Celtic fairy lore the sidhe fairylore are immortals living in the ancient barrows.
I thought to understand these Celtic fairies, we should first have a look where they first came from and 
from what I guess most fairies roots are. I found that in Celtic mythology and other Celtic 
traditions many cultures and civilization have started with the Celtic Fairy.
In the Celtic religion, there was Celtic deities in Gaul -France and Belgiun, Hispania -Spain and Britannia
 Britain during the Roman occupation of these regions or provinces. But the situation changed when Christianity spread to the west and north. These deities that were worshipped before the 
conversion to Christianity were reduced to the status of the fairies in Celtic mythology and Folklore. 
These earlier Celtic traditions of the fairies, the former Irish or even the Welsh deities were also not 
fairies in the usual sense. They looked very much like human in size and shape except they had 
special magick powers and they weened eternally young like elves; They had no wings
So were getting into another race of the magick that i love The Dananns or their Welsh 
counterparts were usually seen as a race of Fae people that couldn't die just as mortal can, but their lives could 
last hundreds or even thousands of years. Of course the human leaders in the Christian faith had
problems with this. thinking they were with the devil of sorts the elves and fairies. And of course
those stupid humans were crazy... if only I could have been back in those day. Well  thank god for 
time.. for those beliefs are no longer shared today. for the most part.  

The Solitary Fairy
There are many different kinda Solitary Fairies, such as the House-spirit and the Water-sheerie
which is the own brother to the English Jack-0'-Lantern; the Banshee in many
The Leshy or Leshovik keeper of
the Forest
different forms; concerning these presently; there is the brownie, the Dallahan, headless phantom- one used
The Phooka in his rabbit form
to stand in a Sligo street on dark nights till lately; the Black Dog, a form that can change change at will- the
Phooka, And on ships at the Sligo quays are haunted sometimes by this spirit, who announces his presence by a sound of the flinging of all 'the tin porringers in the world' down into the hold. He even follows them into the sea. The Phooka, Selkirk,Changeling and the Male woodland Sprite called The Leshy or Leshovik.
There is the Leanhaun Shee -fairy mistress, who seeks the love of mortals. If they refuse her she must be
Male Drow
their slave, if they consent her, they are hers and could only escape by finding another to take her place.
The fairy lives on their life, and they will waste away over time. Death is not escape for her.
She is the Gaelic muse, for she gives inspiration to those she persecutes. The Gaelic poets die young, for she is restless and will to let the remain long on earth -- this malignant phantom.
The Great distinction between the Solitary fairy and the Social fairy is, that the Solitary Fairy may
elect to ware an red, brown or grey instead of the customary green. He/She avoids large gatherings and
Male Brownie
prefers to be left by himself/herself, disdaining the unbridled gaiety of a Social Fairy or
Trooping Fairies. The Solitary Fairy is often associated with a specific household, place or
occupation, notably the a shoemaker brownies or leprechaun of Ireland.
It is said that many solitary fairies will appears ominous to mortals and are also very easily irritated
by humans too. None the less, these fairies are not indifferent to the human kind and is more likely to
interact with our lives then any of the other type of fairies. This being men, women or children.
Solitary fairies generally will give lavish gifts to mortals, but the consequences of
accepting these gifts may be not worth the gifts themselves. Faithful, but suspicious Christians at the ancient
times have also accused Solitary Fairies of being in the league with the devil himself, a perception not
widely shared by many. Mind included! It could be because of the type of fairies associated with the class
of the Solitary Fairies- here are a few more... banshee, baobhan sith, brownie, bwci, cadineag, 
caointeag, cluricaune, dooiney marrey, dooiney oie, dullahan, ellyll, fairy lover. Leannan sidhe fenodyree, glaistig, gruagach, leprechaun, piskie, pooka, phooka, pwca, siabraid, s'thich. 
These are yet just a few ofthe Solitary Fairies besides there are the divers monsters too --
the Augh-iska, the Water-horse, the Payshtha, the Lake-dragon and other such creatures like fairies or spirits.

Trooping Fairies
Trooping fairies, are those who live in groups; 
These fairies prefer green to all other colours yet in my research I did find that they do ware other
Trooping Fairies 
colors too and they range more widely in size than the other Fairies that I've done on this post. Some of these Troop fairies can be so tiny as to have a caps the size of a heather bell-while other troop fairies can get 
as large as an human to have intercourse/sex. Although they may have higher spirits than the Solitary fairy, they still may present more a threat to mortals/humans; especially in the Scottish Gaelic Sluagh! Take careful cause with them because they host the unforgiving dead!
But with all the scariness/I still think these Troop fairies are in themselves quite unique and are
important to all. These Fairies can be found in merry bans about the hawthorn trees, at feast and at
gilded fairy palaces too. They delight in company, while the solitary fairy avoid the large gathering, preferring to be left by themselves and would much rather be separated from one another. Fairies exist all over the world. In Ireland they are the 'Sidhe' a name retained from the ancient days. In a group they are the 'daione sidhe' or fairy people. Some say that they get their name from ' Aes Sidhe' --- folk of the 'Sidhe' meaning
Troop Fairies at their Fairyland
hilock meaning mound. from the large sidh/mounds that they all inhabit in Ireland. But others claim that the mounds that they live in got their name from the fairies themselves who habitation of them.One will really never know..? The troop fairy are found living in the bushes and & circles of stones that crop up all over
Ireland- the fairy raths. The fairy raths crop up in pastures all over Ireland and the farmers never plow over them for fear of disturbing the fairies who live there & it could bring bad luck upon themselves and their
families. These fairies are said to be very beautiful, with long yellow hair, and perfect delicate forms.
They love milk, honey and drink flowers nectar as their fairy wine.
The fairies can assume any form & can make horses out of straw. They have the power to affect human life,
especially unbaptized children. They love music, and often lure mortals into an eternal dance with their piping and singing. These Troop fairies love to dwell together in larger societies. The Tuatha de Danann is an
ancient race of fairies descended from the Celtic goddess Danu. They are said to be very wise and love
to learn. Legend says a battle ensued between the humans and the Tuatha de Danann  for dominion of Ireland.  Well you can guess who won... The humans ultimately did win the battle and the
Tuatha de Danann retreated into a hidden location only known to the Otherworld.
I hope you all Enjoyed my post on Fairies. I haven't done one In a while.
