Abstract

The article addresses the oral tradition and tales about certain Slovenian supernatural beings that accompany the annual cycle and its turning points: midsummer and midwinter solstice as well as spring and autumn changing shifts. Discussed are the changing images of these folk belief narratives resulting from continuously changing cultural and social contexts, while supernatural figures or spirits acquire a demythicised image in contemporary belief tales and urban legends.
