Choosing Top 5 Romanian Folk Tales was not an easy task when the amazing people from Folklore Thursday invited me to contribute with an article drawing from the vast Romanian folklore.
Go on quest for ‘Youth without Age and Life without Death’.
Engage with Half-man-riding-on-the-worse-half-of-a-lame-rabbit.
Witness sorcery in the story of the ‘Enchanted Pig’.
Discover that love is ‘Like Salt in a Meal’ and that you better be kind or the ‘Old Man’s Clever Daughter’ will teach you a lesson to remember.
Come read about Top 5 Romanian Folk Tales over on the Folklore Thursday blog. Allow yourself to be charmed.
