During the times of our ancestors, there was nothing like books, where stories could be written. To entertain themselves, they told stories. During the full moons, families gathered around the fireplace, and it was at this time that our grandparents satisfied the curiosity of children who wanted to know why things are the way they are in the world. Some of these oral stories were told to entertain, but most importantly, they served as a subtle way to morally teach the children. Children came to understand that certain actions and behaviors would lead to consequences. Then again, the good will always triumph over evil.
