#FolkloreThursday: Public folklore in action
Many fairy tales were once a part of oral tradition and belong to the broader category of folklore. In the 21st century, the Internet has become a way to connect folklore scholars and enthusiasts, who can keep alive dying traditions and old stories through this new medium. Three years ago this June, #FolkloreThursday was launched. It now has its own website, and among today's offerings is a fascinating piece about monsters in North American folklore, which include Wendigo, Dogman, Mothman, Flat Woods Monster, and Jersey Devil.
