NO,but loving your enemies is.

Fairies belong to the magical world. The same world of Harry Potter and Narnia. Christians are to stay away from magic - even the appearance of such. The magical world is a world of denomic forces. Believing in such things, even just liking them, is of the Devil. It's a spider's web - once caught up into this web, a person can get caught and delve deeper into Satan's hands.

I don't think there is anything wrong with liking fairies provided you are not placing any trust in them.

No, the love of fairies isn't Biblical.

What do you mean by like Fairies? Fairies are not angels.

Fairies, as depicted by folk literature, are no doubt appealing. But they are pure fantasy. There is nothing real nor Biblical about them.
(Incidentally, the angels described in the Bible are not small, feminine and delicate, but mighty emissaries of God who do battle for His cause)
If fairies take more of your time and interest than the things of God, then "liking" them would be wrong.

I think one should consider the origin of fairies. Fairies formed part of the Celtic culture and were considered spirits that were to be appeased. As such, they are most likely images of demons. Consider also that Jesus clearly stated that the devil himself appears as an angel of light. My vote is for staying away from fairies, leprechauns and the like.

They may be alright for children if they know that they're not real. As long as you understand they're not gods or goddesses, He might not mind.

There is nothing wrong with liking them. Do you believe in them?

It's true that, for a Godly person, 'this world' and it's corrupt ways leaves alot to be desired (since all of it's corruption, hatred, etc. is "grevious" to us, we are "poor in spirit").
"So, I hated life".
"he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life".
Yes we are to want something better than this world, but not an imaginary world of OUR making, we are supposed to desire HIS world.
God will reward us in the afterlife, but we must first have His present kingdom in our heart in this life...
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" (the present/inner kingdom).

If you mean you think fairies (such as in folklore and chidren's stories) are real, you cannot love what does not exist.
OTOH, if you mean you simply like artistic representation of fairies, no problem.
When I was a child, I always thought that fairies were simply a variety of angel, myself.

Fairies are not real. Angels are real, but they aren't the cute little baby statues you see around. Children believe in fairies because their parents mistakenly teach them or let them watch ungodly movies with fairies in them. Fairies are part of a fantasy world for some people.
