From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This category encompasses modern Egyptian folklore. Most modern Egyptian folklore is based on tales and beliefs transferred from earlier generations by narration. They are rarely written down, possibly because the modern Egyptians prefer narration to written texts, and also because most of such tales originate in the rural parts of Egypt where illiteracy is quite common.
