" Myths which are believed in tend to become true."

George Orwell

Myths are usually understood as stories about gods or divine figures. They answer big questions such as: how was the world created? Where do humans come from? How did we learn to make fire, or to smith metal? What is the origin of the gods?

Myths

ARGUS

The Sun and the Moon

"Behind every myth lies a truth; beyond every legend is reality, as radiant (sometimes as chilling) as the story itself"

Phyllis McGinley

Legends deal with heroes, imagined as human or superhuman.

Legends

Lady Godiva

The Gordian knot

"When knowledge is scant or conflicting, folklore takes over"

Paul Smith

the bakezori

Folklore covers a range of beliefs, from the existence of fairies who dance in certain places when the moon is full, to the habits of the Loch Ness Monster, to the belief that witches can turn into hares and steal milk from cows.

Folklore

the dahu

An urban legend is a form of modern folklore in which stories told are thought to be true but are likely untrue or distortions and exaggerations of the truth. They are often modified to suit better to the place or year they are told.

Urban Legends

dame blanche / resurrection mary / uniondale ghost

"The seed of an urban legend find fertile soil at the corner of tragedy and imagination"

Thomm Quackenbush

The term “creepypasta” is derived from the internet slang term “copypasta” (copy and pasted text). Creepypasta can be text-only, but some of the most famous stories were circulated with a cryptic image or video.

Creepypasta

" We didn't want to go, we didn't want to kill them, but its persistent silence and outstretched arms horrified and comforted us at the same time..."

- 1983, photographer unknown, presumed dead
