    Favorite mythological love story

    Although they mostly end tragically, what is your favorite mythological love story? There are so many, it is difficult to choose just one! I like the story of Apollo.

    Who is the most tragic character/story u know?

    How about the story of Orpheus and Eurydice? This a sad and tragic myth. They had a happy life until she tragically died. Orpheus then tried to save her, unsuccessfully, from the underworld.

    Friday the 13th

    Where did the urban legend of Friday the 13th originate and why is bad luck associated with this date? Is it because of the movie or was the movie made because this legend existed?

    I remember not being able to watch this movie when I was younger. I caught it on cable the other day and it did not seem that scary at all! I'm not a fan of this genre anyway!

    Werewolves vs. vampires

    I have always thought that is was primarily a new phenomena. The media needs to pit vampires against someone, werewolves are the perfect ones. I agree, however, that it is a bit strange how they make them get along in the movies/TV shows.

    Ouija boards

    I have never played and don't think that I ever would! I have always been very afraid to try it and inadvertently uncover something that should be left alone!

    Mythology graduate programs

    I would have also enjoyed taking a course in mythology but my school offered none specifically on this topic. I have checked online and found some options. It is on my to do list for this year!

    Pat: people.against.twilight

    I must admit that I did enjoy the books. They were quick reads. The movies, however, left much to be desired. I just sat in the theater shaking my head because I could not believe I had to sit through 2 hours of cheesiness. I should have never seen the movies!

    Beginning interest in mythology

    I became interested in mythology in high school as well. We had a project in my english class and I picked mythology because I figured it would be fun yet easy. I have been hooked since then!

    Mythological movies

    It seems that movies about superheroes are made all of time. How about movies about mythological figure? Any good ones lately? Any that you know are in the pipe works?

    Mythological names

    I don't think I would name my children after mythological figures but I also agree that they make very good pet names! Maybe I'll name my next dog Zeus.

    Who is you favorite god or goddess?

    Who is your favorite God or Goddess? My favorite Goddess is Athena. She is the Goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, just warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill.

    What are you doing new year's eve?

    The only ritual I take part in is eating 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight. I believe this ritual originated in Spain. I like the idea of "letting go" by lighting a piece of paper on fire with these things written on them. Maybe I will incorporate that this year!

    The love of history

    I love history as well but the only thing I collect is fairy art. I also collect books especially history books! I have them all arranged on my shelf by time periods.
