    Default Legends, myths and folkore tales?

    Hi do anyone here know of a legend, a myth or a folkore tale that is told to them by some one else or heard of one? Will I heard of one from my great aunt, she said if you whistle in your house, when it was at night time your mouth will dissapper and will niver come back but in order to prevent that from happening you must rub your ear twice so it can stop it from preventing from happening. So do you know of any Flokore tale or legends or myth's?






    Thank you Nespa So much!!!

    I have heard of too many superstitious things, local folklores and myths. One of which is to not point to something, especially to a forested area or a grassy lot, at night. If you forget and do point, you have to bite your finger. Otherwise, the earth spirits/dwarfs/gnomes/goblins that live in that area will bewitch you.

    (PM option is off. I refuse to hear people whine.)

    My grandma says you shouldn't go alone in the forest caring a candle when it's night time,or bad spirits will take you off the track and get you lost.

    Well, they say if you walk past a mirror thirteen times, you'll see how you'll look like when you die. And never to point at the moon, or she'll scratch you. Why? Because the moon's too vain to be pointed at. But i don't believe it anyway. I tried the thirteen mirror thing and is so dissapointed.

    Oh boy, I have a whole book of Irish legends that my grandmother gave me. Mostly pixies and leperchauns, clovers and luck, ghouls and banshees, things of that nature.
    I'll see if I can track down the book and post one of the stories in it

    My aunt has a book, The Grimm Brothers' compilations, I think. It has a lot of European fairy tales in it. It was very interesting ^^

    Voytak George Survel (a.k.a the goatman), was born in 1890 and died 1961 and there is a folklore that when he died that he became half goat and half man because he would always have his goats following him.
