August 22 – World Folklore Day

Día del Floklore
| 22 August, 2019 |

Date chosen in remembrance of 22 August 1846, when the British William G. Thorns published in the London magazine ‘Atheneum’ a letter in which he first used the term ‘folklore’. The word derives from “folk” (people, people) and “lore” (knowledge, science) and is referred to as “popular knowledge”.
