The Great and Powerful A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal!


Today is the day! The day when all the bloggers participating in the A to Z Challenge reveal their planned themes for this year. I have been participating in A to Z since 2012, and I have been doing themes since 2013. They are always "Mythology and Folklore" related (duh). In the past years, my themes have been:

Weird Princesses (2013)
Tales with Colors (2014)
Epics A to Z (2015)
Diversity A to Z (2016)
WTF - Weird Things in Folktales (2017)
WTF Hungary - Weird Things in Hungarian Folktales (2018)

This year, once again, I am doing a folktale-related theme. Drumroll, please! The theme for the 2019 A to Z Challenge on this blog is

FRUIT FOLKTALES!

Folktales, legends, and myths about fruit, from A to Z. I have been thinking about this theme for years, because I love eating fruit, and I am fascinated by all the traditional stories around the world that feature them. And since I already have all my posts locked and loaded, I can tell you that there will be some unexpected contestants on the list! Get ready for redcurrants, persimmons, Indian almonds, and whatever the heck a kundong koong is.
See you in April!

  21. I also love fruit. I call myself a fruit-aholic. I've never thought about fruit in folktales though.

    Maybe I should: Aesop's fables certainly has plenty, and there are poison apples, or... You got me. I'm in!

  22. Ha, what a great theme. In the beginning there was that apple, and fruit folklore has never looked back! I look forward to all the treats you've collected for us.
