In Finland, the Northern Lights are called "revontulet" or "fox fires". One old folktale tells of an Arctic fox running and scampering in the far north, throwing coloured lights up into the dark sky by sweeping frozen snow crystals upwards with his tail. #FolkloreThursday https://t.co/UfFPdFZ6bw

@VenetiaJane
Poseidon, also known as ‘Earth-Shaker’, is the Greek god of the sea, earthquakes, storms and horses. The pine and all cone-bearing trees were dedicated to him as the wood of these trees was said to yield the finest timber for building ships. #FolkloreThursday #trees VenetiaJane's Garden's photo on #FolkloreThursday

One of the legends around Edinburgh's dormant volcano Arthur's Seat is that it is in fact a sleeping dragon who ate so much he went to sleep+hasn't woken since~seems fitting! #FolkloreThursday I wonder how many other volcanoes have fire breathing dragon legends attached to them?

🔥⚒️🔥The island of Vulcano in the Mediterranean, has given us the word 'volcano'. Romans believed it was the forge of Vulcan, blacksmith to the gods. Eruptions were the sparks flying up as he hammered out thunderbolts for Jupiter, and forged weapons for Mars. #FolkloreThursday P J Richards's photo on #FolkloreThursday

Janet Forsyth, a 17th century Orcadian, dreamed a storm would take her lover and warned him, he scoffed. But she was right. Devastated and branded a witch due to this and other premonitions, she was sentenced to death but disappeared before they could hang her. #FolkloreThursday Katherine Soutar Artist's photo on #FolkloreThursday

Herodotus wrote of Persian invaders in 479BC preparing to assault a town on the Kassandra peninsula being swept away by an angry Poseidon. Modern scientists found evidence on the peninsula of a tsunami that occurred around 500BC. Don't mess with Poseidon. #FolkloreThursday Adam Pidgeon's photo on #FolkloreThursday

Stories of "the wild men of the trenches" circulated on the western front in WW1. Soldiers claimed that whole regiments lived in caves under no man's land and came out to forage corpses. As the rumor legend grew, these deserters became primal and monstrous #folklorethursday

The four pieces of the fallen, broken 20m high menhir at Locmariaquer can be clearly seen in Levy's card no. 6. Reasons offered for why it fell include lightning strike, earthquake and deliberate human destruction. The latter seems most likely! #FolkloreThursday Frenchpostcardsofmegaliths's photo on #FolkloreThursday

Do the dead need shoes? "In the parish of Defynnog, Breconshire, there was a custom (up to 1843, when it ceased through the angry action of a lawless widower) of giving to the parish clerk the best pair of shoes and stockings left behind by the deceased." #FolkloreThursday #Wales Mark Rees's photo on #FolkloreThursday

Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl are adjacent volcanoes at the south end of the Valley of Mexico. Itzaccihuatl's resemblance to a reclining woman (pictured below) gave rise to a legend the volcanoes were lovers that could not bear to be out of each others sight. #FolkloreThursday Rick Palmer's photo on #FolkloreThursday

In Japanese mythology Namazu is a giant catfish who lives under the islands of Japan & causes violent earthquakes. Once people prayed to the gods to stop the earthquakes and they searched everywhere for the cause, finally realising it was Namazu. 1/2 #FolkloreThursday #mythology curious ordinary's photo on #FolkloreThursday

“Certain wonderfull overflowings.” The Great Flood of 30th Jan 1607 hit S/W England at 30 mph, with waves of 25 ft rushing up the Bristol Channel. It covered 200 sq miles of land & killed 2000 people, wiping out whole villages. One theory is it was a tsunami. #FolkloreThursday Maude Frome's photo on #FolkloreThursday
