#AtoZChallenge: Wendigo

W

This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.

I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes.  It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants.  🙂

 

Today’s creature is the Wendigo. The term was coined by the Algonquian people along the Atlantic coast and Great Lakes region of the U.S. and Canada. It is believed that the creature started out as a human and were changed when they started eating human flesh. It can be found in shows such as Supernatural, Haven, Grimm, and Charmed. In fiction, they can be found in Pet Sematary and The Orphanmaster.  Find out more about it here.

    1. Hi Doreen,
      If it helps I’m a wimp too. I write horror, and paranormal novels and won’t take the ghost tours that are offered in Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA when we go to visit those cities. 🙂

  1. I was thinking really hard today, wondering what you would choose for W! There are so many: Werewolves, Warlocks, Witches. I didn’t even think of Wendigoes! I remember these from Supernatural. Good pick!

    1. Thanks. It was on Supernatural I heard the term for the first time. I just knew it would fit with the theme because I was wanting to choose creatures people might not have heard of before. 🙂

    1. I’ve never seen the episodes for those two shows that had the wendigo in them. The first time I ever heard of them was on Supernatural. I wouldn’t want to cross paths with one.
