The term ‘myth’ derives from a Greek word meaning a traditional story, but can also mean a story dealing with something significant.
Many have ritual or religious significance, or relate stories of gods and heroes. Some tell how the world or universe was created, or how the world will end. Others help the reader to understand and handle life situations. There are many theories about why we have myths.
Creation myths seem to be found in all cultures and are often linked with religious beliefs, but other subjects of myths are endless, passing down tribal history and education among the amazing stories.
Celtic myths are our current fare. Japanese and Chinese are next on the agenda. There is such a wealth of material, and final choice is left to members.
