DANSE MECABRE fun folk
Danse Macabre

The tradition of the Danse Macabre dates back to the Middle Ages, perhaps earlier, and many different theories exist as to what was its original purpose. It is a cross-cultural phenomenon, occurring in English, French and Spanish folklore and art, among others.
Some thought the images of skeletons dancing in the streets would intimidate Death so that no one would be taken away. Others thought it was to trick Death into thinking all the villagers in this particular area were already dead... and enjoying it! So there was nothing for the spectre of Death to do and He would fly on. Still others thought it a way to point out no matter if you are Queen or serving wench, Bishop or bastard, minstrel or milliner... eventually we all will danse the Danse Macabre.
