Nowadays if you are much active on social media platforms specially on facebook you must have seen people sharing pictures of different types of Elves hoping that sharing these images will bring so good news.
Now the surprising thing to see is that the amount of people believing this to be true and sharing on their individual timeline. And some even claimed that they had some good news just after sharing the pictures.
So today we are gonna know more about the Elves and the history behind them.
Let’s get started.
What is an Elf?
An elf is a type of human like supernatural being in Germanic mythology and folklore.( Folklore is the expressive body of culture shared by a particular group of people.)
In medieval Germanic-speaking cultures, elves seem generally to have been thought of as beings with magical powers and supernatural beauty, ambivalent towards everyday people and capable of either helping or hindering them.
Elves have been a popular subject in fiction for centuries, ranging from William Shakespeare’s play “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” to the classic fantasy novels of J.R.R. Tolkien 300 years later. Probably the most famous of these magical creatures are the elves that work for Santa Claus at the North Pole.
The truth behind the “Elf trend”
So now you see every other person to share the pictures of Elves but there is a little truth hiding behind this whole trend.
So the truth is there are some people who run pages and they wanna get likes, comments & shares of their post so what can be a better way than this? And you can not deny the fact that how much people are believing this to be true and sharing.
That was just the simple motive to make this a trend. And they know people will believe it because we all want good things to happen in our life and if that can happen just by sharing these images so why not!
Do they actually bring wonderful things in your life?
Okay now this is the most common and most important question that crosses your mind. Even if you have shared it or ignored this thing will definitely come to your mind as you see almost most of your friends are sharing and even claiming they got good news within some time.
Now understand first even though the Elves are believed to have supernatural and magical powers will just an image of them can do any wonderful things in your life? The answer is of course ‘no’. Now you will think about those people who claimed they got good news.
So we have a basic calculation to this. Just analyze your life till now, as simple as that. And you will find life is all mixed up of good and bad things. Even those people who claimed to have good news will be getting ups and downs in life. And has anyone become a millionaire by doing this? No. The only true gainers in this trend are those page admins who have got huge engagement for their page.
So it is better to believe in the work you are doing and work hard. Good things will happen to you anyways.
