Welcome to the new #FolkloreThursday website!
When we started the hashtag day back in June 2015 we were unsure how it would go down. We were excited, but would anyone else be interested? The answer we have received week after week has been a resounding ‘Yes!’, and it is thanks to the fantastic feedback, support and participation that we have received that this website is here today.
The aim behind the hashtag, and now the website, is to bring together people from all walks of life who share a common passion: folklore. Here on the site you will find a brilliant selection of posts written by our hand-picked contributors especially for the launch, covering topics ranging from tree lore, Scottish legends and Cornish smugglers, to the bones of the dead and the fascinating tradition of the Burryman, with much more in-between. And that is only the beginning: new content will be added weekly, so make sure you bookmark the site and come back regularly!
We hope you enjoy this site as much as we have enjoyed putting it together. It has been a truly remarkable journey so far, and we look forward to wherever it takes us next – a huge thank you to everyone who has been with us so far, and long may it continue.
Your #FolkloreThursday hosts,
Willow Winsham, Dee Dee Chainey and Seline Sigil.
