Read ghost stories, myths, legends and wonder tales from all over Mexico. There is an old tale which claims that at midnight, on Christmas Eve, the cattle will kneel in the barn and speak with one another. Once an old Maryland man decided to test the tale by hiding in the barn at midnight to listen. So he climbed a rope to the window in the hayloft.
Much of this detritus comes from folktales told to Howard True Wheeler and published in 1943 by The American Folklore Society as Tales from Jalisco, Mexico. I like the collection’s subtle correspondences to Mexican history. Some tales featuring coyotes and rabbits seem to have pre-Colombian roots, while the variants on stories familiar from Perrault and the Brothers Grimm may have drifted over in the long wake of Cortés. A third group of stories, like the Virgin of Guadalupe, reveals mixed parentage. Their dark sense of humor and travesties of religious authority seem familiar to me, the most.
