Once Upon a Time, There Was a Pin….
I’m always fascinated to learn about the fun holidays people have invented. That was one of the appealing things of Disney’s Celebrate Today pin series from 2020. They definitely picked some days I didn’t know about, including the February date, Tell a Fairytale Day.
Tell a Fairytale Day is February 26th each year. Talk about a great day for Disney to highlight since so many of their animated classics are versions of fairytales.
And, it’s no surprise that they are highlighting the cast of one of those fairytales for this pin. They’ve picked Sleeping Beauty. The pin features Aurora and Prince Phillip as well as the three fairies and, up in the corner, Maleficent in her dragon form. I’m not sure why they picked this particular fairytale to highlight – maybe the fact that fairies play a large part in it inspired them.
The pin itself is fine, although the characters look slightly off. Maybe I’m expecting more from a pin this size with so many characters on it, but their faces look a little indistinct to me. As always, the date of the celebration is in the lower right corner. It’s a bit shiny, so it’s a little hard to read the date.
Tell a Fairytale Day may have been a bit obvious for Disney to include in their Celebrate Today pin series, but it is one that their fans will appreciate. If you are a Disney fan, you’ll love this pin as a reminder to enjoy fairytales on the twenty-sixth of February every year.
