Fantasy is a genre of fiction containing fantastical elements that do not exist in our real world. Unlike science fiction, fantasy is often inspired by folklore, or mythology. We can see that a lot of fantasy is based on the human stories or set in human civilizations but with supernatural elements. These can include the existence of magic or those with magical powers, and mythical beings such as dragons or mermaids. The most popular fantasy franchise of all time is Game of Thrones, which was set in a fictional land called Westeros.

What is the fantasy genre?

The fantasy genre features magical and supernatural elements that do not exist in the real world. Sometimes within the fantasy genre, the real-world takes place as the setting with fantastical elements that create imaginary universes with their own laws, logic, and population of imaginary races and creatures. The fantasy genre does not refer real or scientific standards.

What are the main elements of a fantasy story?

The main elements that a fantasy story needs are a magic system that refers to the events that happen within the story and cannot exist in the real world, a well-developed setting, and a set of complex characters that provide interest and keeps readers engaged. Other elements of a fantasy story are a central conflict and a power structure or system of rule that exits within the created fantasy world.

Why are fantasy stories popular?

Fantasy stories are very popular as they involve adventures, battles or journeys and are typically made up stories. Fantasy stories also serve as a form of escapism from the stresses of work or school. Due to this fantasy stories are popular and are unite audiences regardless of background, age, or culture. Some examples of fantasy stories include Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and the Chronicles of Narnia.

Santa Claus

Santa Claus is also known as Father Christmas and Saint Nicholas. He lives in the North Pole with his wife Mrs. Claus. He has a large workforce, the Christmas Elves, who help to make gifts and prepare for their busiest night of the year, Christmas Eve.  On this night, Santa loads up his sleigh, and flies around the world delivering presents to every child (the ones who celebrate Christmas). The sleigh is pulled by his twelve reindeer, led by Rudolph and his bright red nose, which lights up the night sky. Santa Claus is a very jolly man who enjoys a mince pie and a glass of sherry (UK) or cookies and milk (US).

Santa Claus varies in height, but is commonly depicted as 6’ (1.83 m) tall. In the 1837 poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas" by Clement Clarke Moore, Saint Nicholas is described as a 'jolly elf' with small features that may imply that he is actually the size of an elf instead of an adult man.
