March is not Spring in Northern BC. We are still blanketed in snow and while the days may be getting warmer, we are weeks and weeks away from crocuses and daffodils. Jenna Da Sie’s topic this week on the Romance Writers Weekly Blog Hop is a great way to forget that depressing thought!
St. Patrick’s Day is coming up. Do you believe in any Irish folklore?
I believe in myths and folklore the way I believe in aliens – I don’t think they exist (it's an uncomfortable thought, after all), but it’s a pretty big universe and we are still discovering things, so I am not entirely ready to rule them out.
But I do believe that many tales we now consider unreal were originally based on true life. Irish folklore is full of god-like beings who may very well have been real people whose exploits and talents were exaggerated (for want of a better word). I’ve always loved that part of history/mythology – the chance that a real person may have been the instigator for glorious stories.
So, do I believe in Irish folklore? No – and yes. I’m willing to keep an open mind!
