So Are Mermaids Real???
Mermaids – half-human, half-fish sirens of the sea - appear in folklore tales and cultures worldwide on every continent. Their stories first appeared in ancient Assyria (Wikipedia), in which the goddess Atargatis transformed herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover….yup, seriously!
There are many different legends about mermaids and even claims of actual mermaid sightings. Modern sightings are very rare, but still occur. Although, one was reported in 2009 off the coast of Israel and a $1 million reward was even offered for a photograph.
So while no evidence of aquatic humans has ever been found, there are some famous mermaids we will never deny and always cherish….okay maybe some more than others!
- Ariel – Our Little Mermaid - This famous beautiful red headed princess lived the dream of becoming human in order to be closer to Prince Eric. Spoiler Alert!....Yep, they fall in love, Eric kills Ursula, King Triton willingly changes Ariel from a mermaid into a human, and they marry on a ship and live happily ever after!
- Mermaids of Weeki Wachee Springs, FL - Weeki Wachee Springs State Park is one of Florida’s oldest and most unique roadside attractions. The park employees dozens of mermaids to perform in their well-known shows.
- Mermaids of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - So not all mermaids are pretty or pleasant. The ones in the Goblet of Fire were scary looking mystical beasts. Yellow eyes, grayish skin, wild dark green hair, and broken teeth….yuk!
- Starbuck’s logo - So who remembered or even realized the Starbuck’s logo is that of a mermaid?? The logo has evolved since the first store opened in 1971 from a bare-breasted lady to today’s modest long-haired mermaid. She appears on billions of coffee cups each year around the world.
- Mermaids of Mako & H2O: Just Add Water - A super fun Australian dramatic fantasy TV show about three teenage girls who become mermaids with powers There are three or four seasons available on Netflix, along with additional spin-offs, and has become a major hit with children and teenagers.
Legends of mermaids may be ancient and these mysterious creatures may be unproven, but they are still present in many forms.
