Folklore Quizzes & Trivia

Some people think that folklore was born out of people’s need to explain what they couldn't understand, or that it is the expression of people’s fear of the unknown. Either way, folklore proves that across time and space, people were extremely creative in making up stories.

If you want to know to what extent did their imagination fly, answer questions like: “How does the familiar folktale of ‘Hansel and Gretel’ relate to religious traditions?”, “What creature of the Japanese mythology has eight tails?”, “How did Loki, the Icelandic trickster god, come to have an eight-legged horse son?”

“What was the cause that started the most important war in Greek mythology?”, and “How did Atum, an important deity in Egyptian mythology, create the universe?”, and be assured your curiosity will not be disappointed.
