Fire can be a powerful and sometimes all-consuming force. Helpful and dangerous in equal measure, the ability to use fire sets man apart from the animals. It should not be too surprising, then, that fire features heavily in our folklore and traditions.
This episode looks at aspects of fire within our folklore from around the world, from calendar customs to mythical creatures; old gods to modern practises. Gather around your hearth and learn about the folklore of fire with The Folklore Podcast.
