A2Z 13

M for mermaid. In folklore, a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide, including Europe, Asia, and Africa. Mermaids are sometimes associated with perilous events such as floods, storms, shipwrecks, and drownings. In Greek mythology, mermaids were often referred to as sirens. The beautiful creatures were sometimes depicted as being half bird also, but the ones that are most popular in myths were beautiful women with fish tails. As beautiful as these sirens were, they were not always the nicest creatures.

  1. Now, I am familiar with mermaids! They seem to have a bad reputation, but as they are a hybrid creature, I like to think of them as having two sides, it’s just that their nice side isn’t reported upon as often! 🙂
