It's #AppreciateADragonDay, which is all the excuse I need to post these fiery photos of the incredible Wat Samphran Temple in Thailand. The dragon wrapped around the 16-story temple looks like its breathing fire in the sunset/ sunrise... #thursdaythoughts #FolkloreThursday #art https://t.co/Xq7vWBWGD7

Anglo-Saxons valued honey as an ingredient of mead, medicine and as a sweetener. Charms were used to bind a swarm to the #beekeper. "Sit, ye siegewives, sink to earth. Never ye wild to the wood fly. Be ye so mindful of my goods As is every man of food and home." #FolkloreThursday https://t.co/Xi7m6UbC5T

A #folklorethursday for my Nan, who we say goodbye to today. In Norse Mythology, Elli is the personification of old age. Thor meets her and tries to prove his strength against her. He is upset when he can’t beat her in a wrestle, yet no one can beat time itself 🕰 @FolkloreThurs https://t.co/f3meZrfTfj

The 1881 census lists some rather curious #occupations. Electric bath attendant sounds perhaps the most dangerous? Invisible net maker would require a great deal of patience. #FolkloreThursday #work https://t.co/Jn4XUSWaVg

The Witches' Well is a drinking fountain located next to Edinburgh Castle, commissioned by Patrick Geddes in 1894, honouring all the people (vast majority of which were women) burned at the stake in Scotland, between the 15th and 18th centuries, for Witchcraft. #FolkloreThursday https://t.co/8DUaDBmFR9

"There is a Glamorganshire ghost called the Green Lady of Caerphilly. She haunts the ruin of Caerphilly Castle at night wearing a green robe & has the power of turning herself into ivy and mingling with the ivy growing on the wall."

One tradition said that all 1169 stones of the alignments at Menec in Carnac #emojibzh were carried there and erected by "crions" who were only 60-90cm tall but stronger than giants. Each of them could carry a menhir single-handed without any help. #FolkloreThursday https://t.co/HH9gtWRcUi

🔥⚒️🔥A Blacksmith's work was thought akin to magic - they were believed to have healing powers, the Horseman's Word to control wild horses, and Blood-Charms to staunch a wound. Even an old hymn invokes protection against "spells of Women, Smiths and Druids..." #FolkloreThursday https://t.co/hcNlxU1bew

For #FolkloreThursday --- Being industrious & honest, working hard & persevering are admirable moral characteristics in many allegorical fairytales - and are often rewarded. 'Zolushka / Cinderella' (1947) dir. Nadezhda Kosheverova, Mikhail Shapiro. https://t.co/72i4JzcEeo

#Winemaking 🍷 was a key part of agricultural labour in the #RomanEmpire. The harvested grapes 🍇 were crushed by trampling them barefoot. This can be seen on mosaics such as the ones at the amphitheatre in Merida, Spain, and Saint Romain-en-Gal, France. #FolkloreThursday https://t.co/h7W3SgvqEG

It was considered unlucky to work in a mine without Knockers (sprites).They would alert men of a collapse by knocking/singing noisily. Disused mines were never sealed up, leaving the knockers to come & go as they pleased😉 #FolkloreThursday @FolkloreThurs #Cornwall #Hellier https://t.co/Xb3Hmpufy9

Japanese shrines hold ceremonies to honor tools at the end of their working life. One is Hari Kuyo, when broken needles and pins are placed in a block of tofu or konnyaku and laid to rest with gratitude for their service. #folklorethursday photo by 豊瀬源 wikimedia commons https://t.co/427eXGdDay

Women are widely associated with textile work, probably because fabrics can be made slowly at home, alongside other tasks. No such luck for the princess in "The Six Swans", who had to sew six shirts out of nettles in time to free her brothers from a curse #FolkloreThursday https://t.co/WbYxyW5Bh3

A Lightning bolt is 5 times hotter than the sun's surface, so foresters, if near a wood during a thunderstorm, stay clear of oak, pine & elm trees, all of which are often struck by lightning. Folklore particularly warns "Avoid the ash, it courts the flash". #FolkloreThursday ⚡️ https://t.co/LD42tiYggU

The moat steps at Tattershall #Castle #Lincolnshire led out of the inner ward and allowed access to the water. Servants unloaded goods from #boats floating in the moat, supplying the #medieval kitchens, great hall and stables #FolkloreThursday #history https://t.co/lZg7D3GEh7

Common gorse blooms in the UK from Jan to June, emitting a coconut scent. In folklore, the ‘kissing season’ happens while it's in flower. Luckily, once out of season, the two other gorse species in the UK ensure there’s a variety in flower throughout the year! #FolkloreThursday https://t.co/aAplQJwUwf

"Mysterious coffin-making has been heard in many villages in #Wales. An old woman said she knew when an important death was likely to happen for: 'There is always a noise of coffin-making in the dead of the night in my grandson's workshop.'" #FolkloreThursday #thursdaythoughts @reviewwales's photo on #folklorethursday

Troller’s Gill, a remote and sinister limestone gorge in the Yorkshire Dales. It’s said to be inhabited by malevolent trolls, and by the Barghest, the monstrous black dog of northern legend who portends death. #FolkloreThursday https://t.co/aVzKjGXpGZ

Queenhithe in the City of #London was once a busy #Saxon and #medieval harbour and market. Established in AD 889 by King Alfred, the dock was a trading shore where goods, grain and merchandise was sold from #boats along the beach #FolkloreThursday #history https://t.co/Cm25MHkNm2

One of my favourite Scots sayings is 'Gaun yersel' which can be translated into English as 'Go on yourself,' meaning 'go for it' & used 'when you want to encourage pretty much anything, anywhere.' Maybe try it out at work. #FolkloreThursday Art by Scottish artist Stewart Bremner. https://t.co/du9Y1MmbuR

Elderly Isle of Wight resident recalls a legend from his own childhood in Dorset: a golden table lay at the bottom of a well at the Buckland/Minterne Dungeon hillfort. An effort to raise it resulted in an earthquake, and the attempt was abandoned @FolkloreThurs #FolkloreThursday https://t.co/vQDEuWJAqW

Brokkr and Eitri were #Norse dwarves who fashioned magical artifacts for the gods making them powerful and invincible. They worked hard and often competed with the Sons of Ivaldi. #FolkloreThursday https://t.co/7ORPMOPRBL
