Folklore Thursday







Whether you're fanatical about folklore or a fan of fairy tales, Folklore Thursday is the place for you. There are hundreds of great Folklore related Tweets posted every day, but with the speed of Twitter and the busy pace of life, it's all too easy to miss out on some of the fascinating Tweets that come through.

With that in mind, we decided to set up Folklore Thursday as a place for people to share all their folklore related tweets. It's simple - all throughout Thursday, post your folklore related content with the #FolkloreThursday hashtag, and your tweets will be retweeted through the @FolkloreThurs account. And don't forget to follow us at @FolkloreThurs!

Unsure what to post? One helpful definition of folklore is:

The traditions, beliefs, customs and stories of a community, passed through the generations by word of mouth.”

That gives plenty of scope, so tweet your blog posts, quotes, artwork and images that cover the following: 

  • Folklore                                       
  • Legends
  • Fairy tales
  • Customs
  • Heritage
  • Traditions
And anything else that falls under the above definition, including music and dance.

Whilst folklore gives plenty of scope, there are a few restrictions. Please refrain from Tweeting:

  • Modern retellings of Fairy tales (there is already a hashtag for these and we don't want to tread on any toes!) 
  • Anything containing offensive language
  • Promotional Tweets for your own products or services. 
  • Pornography (But hopefully that would be a given!)


So that's all there is to it! Tweet your own posts, and don't forget to retweet others throughout the day to help spread the best folklore content the web has to offer.

Don't forget to check out the fabulous #FolkloreThursday website for all your folklore needs!
