At the end of the rainbow is a pot of gold… that’s according to the Philippine folklore. And since a rainbow usually appears when it rains with the sun shining, our elders also said that a tikbalang (a giant half man – half horse mythical creature) was being wed at the back of a church. I guess rainbows are just so magical and mystical that old folks really need to come up with stories to express their wonderment with this spectacular gift from nature.
I particularly love and was delighted by this one… like it’s smiling down at me.
