Hey there, Bubblers.
Hope all my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for?
Did you know…?
Almost every culture around the world has mermaid myths. The oldest myth comes from Mesopotamia. No one quite has an answer for why everyone has apparently seen and heard of women or men who live beneath the waves (and may or may not have tails). One theory is that humans created the concept of the mermaid in order to cope with their own existence as an animal and as something else entirely.
My personal opinion? I think they all have seen a mermaid. Maybe not the same one, but they all have definitely spotted merfolk from back in the day. It’s a much more magical and mysterious thought than, “they just made it all up.” Don’t you agree?
