Hey everyone! Just a quickie Into the Paranormal post today since I'm in the throes of release week. If you're interested, I'm being interviewed today at Darcy Drake's blog and Clancy Metzger's blog. I'd love to see you there.
So, today's topic...
Bugbear is a bearlike goblin, which is a type of bogeyman from medieval England used to scare children to keep them from misbehaving. The name bugbear is from the Celtic bug, which means evil spirit or goblin. They're also known for frightening and annoying people in folktales. Female bugbears tend to take and raise babies themselves. Today, the term is also used for scarecrows.
Have you heard of the Bugbear before?
