Roll over Zeus

In an effort to be well informed at the time if my death I thought to look into my Norse heritage mythology. While I am delighted to see there are the tradition goddess of live Freya who has a twin brother Freyr and married Od but he disappeared.

She lives in Asgard where soldiers go upon death ( but I thought that was Valhalla?) she has a chariot pulled by two gray cats and a boar Hildisvani when the cats are busy. gna runs errands for Frigg as does Hlun. Makes for an interesting visual!

Nanna is married to Balder and died of grief when he died so they got placed on her boat and set a fire. And finally Var punishes the adultery.

So move over Zeus you have afterlife competition.
