The various aspects of our popular culture, the various aspects of folk life, customs and traditions, which are the main manifestations of mental and social life of every people, locally and nationally, are the subject of research of Folklore. For this reason, everything that one does and says people collectively, in whatever tradition it is said, should be recorded, classified and investigated. Thus, the physical life and folk creating (home, food, clothing, grooming, crafts, etc.), spiritual life (religious life, plants, animals, myths, traditions, proverbs, riddles, etc. ) and social life (customs, games, school life, etc.) are some of the key categories investigated folklore.
The tradition, as a body of knowledge and experience that the older to the newer leaves are born, it is also the folklore. Especially the tradition of a people such as the Greek, with thousands of years in the historical arena, is of particular interest because over and above all, is the key element of the national identity of our people.
