Myths and Legends as part of Mexican daily life
It is said that Mexicans are “mitoteros” by nature and that they like legends. Be true or not these legends, the truth is that it is part of the collective and therefore the paranormal is the everyday.
One of these legends is that of Huasca de Ocampo, which is located in the heart of the Mountain Corridor, in the state of Hidalgo. This place has a museum dedicated to the elves. The museum exhibits photographs and a collection of horsehair that is attributed to the elves as being those who made them while the horses slept.
The whole environment in Huasca seems to be a place enchanted by its wooded landscapes, paths and beautiful blue lakes. It should be noted that as part of the belief of paranormal existence in this place, each guest is required to sign a letter in which the administration is not held responsible for the scares and jokes that these elves may make during the night. It is said that the elves are of good character and humor, but they get angry when they invade their place, contaminate it or if they are offended with words.
Paranormal experiences in Huasca de Ocampo
According to María de los Angeles, director of the museum on Huasca, one moonlight night in August 1994 a goblin appeared to explorers and told them that they do not make themselves present to the human being because they are usually attacked by them. Supposedly the elf questioned them about taking care of nature and he mentioned that he did not understand why people were envious, violent and full of evil.
There is a belief that for example, when the keys are lost and it seems to be something casual, it is really a trick of some pixie. It also mentions the fact that in the ranches horses have been found with the lectern (hair on the back) entangled as if they had been braided.
There are many stories and paranormal experiences related to these little beings.
It may actually be a paranormal experience or just a legend created to attract tourists. The truth is that to this day the belief of the existence of these mythological beings, magical and difficult to see by the human eye, is still maintained.
