Hi, my real name is Mariana, I'm 11 years old (a bit bigger, maybe) and I'm from Mexico. Here there are a lot of leyends, usually invented by the Aztecas, or the Mayas (they're groups of people that have existed since a lot of time ago). An example is the Legend of Sac-Nicté and Canek:
Sac-Nicté means White Flower. Born in Mayapan: the power of three provinces who lived in peace: Mayab, Uxmal and Chichen Itza. Canek means black snake, a courageous and tenacious prince of heart. Because he was 21 he was raised king of Chichen Itzá and that same day he saw Princess Sac-Nicté, 15. The two fell in love. However, Sac Nicté was intended for the young ulil, Crown Prince of Uxmal. Time passed and the young Canek was invited to the wedding feast of Sac-Nicté. Legend has it that a small counselor told him Sac-Nicté would be waiting between green flowers: it would be necessary to fight for it, before the target act against them. The wedding day, and while all the guests danced cheerful, Canek arrived with sixty of his principal warriors and went up to the altar where burned incense and chanting priests. Canek arrived with Itzá sign on his chest: Itzalán !, Itzalán! shouted as battlefield, and the moment, snatched the princess of witnesses. Enraged ulil took up arms. The war had broken out: Mayapan and Uxmal against Itzá. Although the reign of Mayapan was over, The Itza left their homes and temples deChichen Iztá, leaving the city crying. Before the children of Itzá was the king Canek, walking trails beside Sac-Nicté. Although the Itza were saved, the armies of Uxmal and Mayapan found echoes in the empty palaces and temples. Chichen Itza was dead, because his people had been abandoned.
