Why Are Unicorns So Popular?

Why Are Unicorns So Popular?

Everyone seems to have gone crazy over unicorns, which got us wondering, how have we ended up in the middle of this unicorn trend?

Where did it come from and why do people seem to love unicorns so much? Rare and majestic, unicorns are powerful, graceful, and mysterious.

The unicorn appeared in early Mesopotamian artworks, and it also was referred to in the ancient myths of India and China, and was described as early as 400BC (although – and close your eyes at this point unicorn lovers – it was probably an Indian rhinoceros).

In July last year the search term ‘unicorn’ overtook ‘mermaid’ in popularity on Google for the first time ever, and popularity isn’t just with the cute and cuddly, unicorn tattoos are becoming increasingly popular.  If you have a daughter or granddaughter under the age of 18 in your family, you will undoubtedly be very familiar with these mystical creatures!

Visually appealing, fantastic, and soothingly pastel in colour, what’s not to love about the unicorn?
