Myth, or mythology, is a theory, of series of theologies developed to explain a variety of topics through short fictitious stories. Ancient mythological theories typically involve transcendent or religious phenomena as a source of preservation and connecting people with their surroundings. Surreal as they can be, myths give people a different or creative outlook on reality.
Folklore, similar to myth, refers to a traditional narrative carried out from the past through oral of behavioral communication. Legends, fables or superstitions are all types of folklore encouraging traditional beliefs and practices profound in culture. Although is it considered to be false, folktales have been preserving old cultural traditions, connecting people to their origins and finding a sense of identity.
