Don't you just love stories? From songs to mangas, movies, books, television, YouTube, blogs, and radio, we listen to our modern storytellers: musicians, narrators, authors, actors and directors, and artists, for the beauty of their creations.
There are hundreds of stories about the Moon and its appearance; some are sacred myths, and others are folktales old and new shared for the simple joy of the tale. We've started what will become a growing stash of myths and stories from around the world. Below you can find links to several stories, as well as a link to submit your own. And hey, if your story isn't totally wack we'll happily immortalize it, and you, right here on the Internets. Fame without fortune has its appeal.

We promised we wouldn't sit through another of Granpa's booze and Werther's Originals addled stories long ago. Do the same, and check out these happenings!
