Merry Christmas & Seasons Greetings from #FolkloreThursday!

© Toa Heftiba

What a year it’s been! The end of 2016 is nigh, and it’s hard to believe all of the amazing things that have happened over the last twelve months. To name but a few, we launched the splendiferous #FolkloreThursday website, interviewed for The Independent newspaper, the BBC invited us down to the Tower of London to appear on BBC Trending, and the launch of the recommended folklore book list and our Patreon page … not to mention meeting all of the wonderful people that have made the #FolkoreThursday hashtag day and website so enjoyable.

We’d like to send a huge thank you to all of our writers, guest hosts, and the amazing people that pledge each month on Patreon, who help #FolkloreThursday grow bigger and better – go and find out about them on the sponsors page, or become one yourself for 2017!

We wondered how we could possibly thank everyone who has taken part in making #FolkloreThursday a great place to be this year, and we thought sending a Christmas card might work – we just couldn’t decide which one to send. So, without further ado, here is a bunch of cards for you to choose from – a personal thank you from us to you for being part of the wondrous #FolkloreThursday community!


So  have a Merry Christmas, Cool Yule, Happy Hanukkah … or Best Wishes for however you celebrate!

#FolkloreThursday will return to Twitter  on the 5th of January 2017!

Don’t forget to check out all of our Christmas folklore articles in the meantime … more coming out over the holidays!
