LIGHTNING LEGENDS AND MYTHS
Myths are old religions. Myths and legends have been around for thousands of years before writing was invented. The word "myth" comes from Greek elders. Legends are about people that have done something special or were famous. We don't know who started myths and legends, but research suggests that old men told their family and friends stories that were handed down from generation to generation. The first person to write myths down on paper was a Greek named Homer. He wrote down the stories that were told to the Greek people. In Rome, the people started making-up their own myths and legends about their own beliefs.
A famous legend today is the "Legend of the Headless Horseman." It is about a man named Ichabod Crane who is invited to a party. He ate and danced all night long, then it was time for him to go home. While he was walking he started to hear hoofs clacking. He started to get scared. All of a sudden, out of the darkness came the headless horsemen riding a steel-black stallion. He was holding his pumpkin head in his hand. the horsemen threw his head at Ichabod and Ichabod ran off screaming.
