    That is amazing!!! the legend of the headless knight comes from hessen for real?? It seems that they did good research for the movie!
    There is a local folk legend in Brazil about the headless mule...that breathes fire through the neck hole....not so scary as the headless knight!

    The movie of 'Sleepy Hollow' (one of my favorites, by the way) is based off of a short story by Washington Irving, an early American fiction writer. He also wrote 'Rip Van Winkle.'

    It eats the eyes of its victims....
    There is also the SACI PERERÊ, a single legged goblin... looks like an afro kid, one leg, a red hood and a pipe.... I've found a funny picture!

    Awesome, I love local legends! Is that a slingshot in Saci Perere's hand??
    I'm a bit confused though...how does a headless mule eat eyeballs? :confused::D

    I really don't want to discover.....:eek:
    We have a lot of local legends, mostly come from the tupi-guarani and other indians that lived here before colonization.
