It's hardly surprising that mariners would have a host of superstitions and folklore about seafaring. In earlier centuries, bad weather, poor communications with land, and disease could bring havoc to any journey.
Folklore both preserves ideas about what sailors feared and provides protections to keep dangers at bay. Learn more about omens related to seafaring, tales of ghost ships, and other hazards that might occur on the high seas in this week's episode of Fabulous Folklore!
