I wouldn’t dismiss everything about some of these "stories" A lot of them are made up but I attended a fishing festival that was held after a lot of trouble and strife from competing fishermen in different villages. One of the fishermen refused to participate and promised all manner of vengeance and halfway through the event a swarm of bees appeared out of nowhere and sent everybody packing.
Coincidence???  .
