The Gods Have Won! Another year

Today is January 6th
So what?

For those who follow the Christian calendar, it’s Epiphany-the day the Wise Men showed up to give their gifts to the baby Jesus.
It’s the day that Germans exchange gifts.
It’s also the day in Norse mythology when you find out if the gods won the battle between themselves and darkness. How do you know if they won? If the sun rose today where you live, the gods won and the world gets another year.

I wonder what we will do with it.

If you’d like to know more about this Norse mythology stuff I recommend:
American Gods and Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman
The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul by Douglas Adams

If you don’t feel like reading you can always check out the Thor movie that came out last summer. It’s on DVD and On Demand.

Enjoy your new start!
