Man in the Moon Legend and Mythology:
The Man in the Moon is a gothic symbol of the full moon, with gothic origins dating back to medieval times. According to legend, children are encouraged to find 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 myth of a man in the moon originates from medieval times and was told by goths throughout history until present day. Over the previous few centuries, goth culture has evolved into new forms, with goths nowadays being different in appearance to goths of the past, but still sharing beliefs and customs.
One who tells the story of a man in the moon will say that he was an old goth who lived multiple centuries ago when goths were hunted and massacred. Therefore, goths fled to the moon where they have thrived ever since. The moon is still to this day inhabited by goths, which is why the full gothic moon shines brighter than the typical boring white light of the sun.
