Three Argentinian Myth

On November 29-30, 2022, Qoolize will be in Buenos Aires for the Latin America Wholesale Congress. If you're considering visiting Argentina, check out the country's three legendary myths.

1. The Bad Light

Mendoza a city in northern Argentina. Travelers and locals continue to visit the area, defying the bad light in the mountains between Uspallata, Puente del Inca, and Las Cuevas, but they don't attempt to explore it. That would be extremely risky. Because this bad, bad light has more than one meaning for the locals.

The legend itself is the bad light. If you see it, you will realize it appears slightly above the ground, hover for a few minutes, and then disappear. Villagers, travelers, some tourists, truck drivers, and locals are among those who see this light, and it isn't easy to convince them otherwise. When this light catches you, bad luck follows.

Or it chases you around in red, green, and white. Is this some demonic flame? Some people seem to believe that when the light is white, it brings you luck. One of the few legends the locals hold is that souls wrongfully sentenced to the cemetery rise to the earth to exact revenge. Another theory is that the spirits of the natives who were brutally murdered seek retribution. Regardless, be cautious when visiting the area.

2. Shrunk Bigfoot

El Pombero, a legendary nocturnal forest dweller, is a myth to the Guaraní people. Pragué (hairy feet), Kuarahy Jára (lord of the sun), and Kara Pyhare (lord of the night) are some of the other names for this creature.

This entity resembles a shrunken version of Bigfoot, a legendary creature, particularly in America. A small forest man with hair all over him. Is it a malicious Hobbit? This being is so quiet that you don't notice it approaching you until it touches you, and when it does, you tremble in fear.

Pombero lives in the woods, often in an abandoned house, and his primary targets are farmers and lonely women.

He seduces women, impregnates them, and adds to his bloodline by having many hairy children. Pombero terrorizes farmers by scaring farm animals, stealing chickens, and scattering crops. To keep him away, please leave out gifts such as rum, cigars, and honey.

We also advise you not to chase after every beautiful sound you hear, as Pombero's talent is to imitate the sounds of forest animals and birds.

3. Luison

Another legend from the Guaraní culture is the Luison, Luisõ, or Lobison, a monstrous creature. It is believed that the 7th son of any couple is always cursed and turned into a werewolf. According to Guaraní mythology, Luison was the child of the evil spirit Tau and the mortal woman Kerana, cursed and turned into a werewolf on the Friday following his 13th birthday. This legend had turned into such a strong belief and fear among the people that until 1907, people started to kill their 7th child. The President of Argentina at the time decided to adopt these children and put an end to this practice.

Of course, like other werewolves, Luison transforms into a werewolf every full moon and destroys everything in his path. The dinner menu is as follows: unbaptized infants, feces, or the flesh of the recently deceased.

If you encounter Luison in Argentina, be careful not to be bitten because one bite is all it takes to turn you into a werewolf.
