Eyebrows


Today will talk about unibrows.
No, I’m not giving a beauty class.

Many cultures believe the person with the eyebrows that met in the middle were associated with deceit, bad-tempers, witchcraft, vampires.
Wow that’s a list!

The Greeks believed people with unibrows were vampires. Those in Germany, Iceland, and Denmark believed they were werewolves. A general consensus is unibrows brought bad luck, immortality, premature death, and violent tempers to those who have them.

  1. What an interesting tidbit! Unibrows are widespread, of course, but still appear out of the ordinary enough to attract folklore. I’m going to remember this next time I do a werewolf story. I’ll make sure the ‘wolf has a unibrow.

      I thought it was so strange, because they are kind of common. Although now women and some men will wax so they don’t have them. I’m glad you enjoyed the post and you can use it. You’ll find lots of strange and weird tidbits like it here. Thanks for coming by and commenting, and for the follow.
