The Twelve Months

the twelve monthsThis folktale is another “Cinderella style” story. However, there are some interesting differences compared to similar versions. Instead of a helpful fairy, she is assisted by the Gods of the twelve months of the year. And the story doesn’t end with her marrying a handsome prince and living an easy life in a palace. She falls in love with a kind man and the two of them have a happy and peaceful life together taking care of her family farm. As nice as it seems, this is not what most people would call a “fairytale” ending!
