Man in the Moon Legend and Mythology: The Man in the Moon is a gothic symbol of the full moon, with origins dating back to medieval times. According to legend, children are encouraged to spot the face on the moon which represents an old man carrying bundles of wood on his back who has lost one of his boots.
As he was being chased by some hunters, he fled to the moon where he has remained ever since. A gothic myth of a man in the moon originates from medieval times and was told throughout history until present day, even though the official gothic period died out centuries ago.
One who tells the story of a man in the moon will say that he was an old goth who lived many centuries ago when goths were hunted by haters. The goths were being massacred, so they fled to the moon where they have lived ever since. To this day, the moon is still inhabited by goths who live forever. The full moon shines brighter than the typical boring white light of the sun.
