Centuries ago, the sudden appearance of a circular pattern of mushrooms in people's soil had them believing that evil forces were in the making. Fairy rings were thought to be formed by a variety of dark forces such as shooting stars, lightning strikes as well as being created by witches. These beliefs were still in existence well into the 19th century.

The English believed that fairy rings were where fairies came to dance and celebrate, the mushrooms of the rings were used as stools for the fairies to recuperate during the evenings festivities. One European legend tells of the origin of these rings as being burned into the soil by a sleeping dragon's tail.

As with many legends a great many of these tales share a common theme of bad luck or misfortune befalling any poor unfortunate soul who was unlucky enough to stumble into one of these rings. Misfortune could come in the form of disease, bad luck, or even being captured and becoming a slave to the fairies within their underground realm. Many farmers were reluctant to have their animals graze within these rings as it was believed to sour the milk of their herd.
