What are your favorite myths/legends?

Post by Heidi M Simone »

Do you have any favorite myths/legends? How about ones that you remember as a kid or ones that stick in your mind the most?

The Greek gods are the ones that stick in my mind the most. :D

I've actually never heard of that one, but it's interesting!
