What is the meaning of the 24 fairies in The Wife Of Bath’s Tale?

It’s the part where the knight comes across the hag for the first time. There are 24 fairies and they disappear when the knight approches them, and all that’s left is the hag. I know that it means something, but I just don’t know. This is not for homework, I’m just curious about it. Thank You!
