Baldr, the Norse Goddess of Light, Joy, Purity, and So Much More #MythologyMonday #MythologyMonandæg #folklore #norse

If you enjoy this post, please retweet it.

As the holiday season continues, I give you yet another god that embodies the season’s spirit. Depending on who you ask, Baldr represented a lot of different things. The only commonality among these interpretations is that he was clearly the most beloved god. Everyone liked him.

Here’s a video on his tragic end.

Don’t feel sad, though. Baldr “returned” when Christianity spread through Scandanavia.

I hope Baldr’s joy reaches you during this holiday season.
