Nordic Gods

March 20, 2013

Their idea of Heaven was VALHALLA. Warriors only. You had to die in battle first and be escorted by beautiful blonde VALKYRIES. Here you could clash in battle all day long, your cleft limbs  miraculously restored at the close of play. Then you spent all night carousing, feasting, getting roaring drunk and discussing the day’s fun.So welcome to the Norse pantheon, which is not just Norway but the rest of Scandinavia – which includes Denmark and Sweden. The Vikings who were Swedes traveled mostly eastwards, and the Danes and Norwegians traveled mostly westwards. (The Swedes also ventured into Finland, which was not too impressed and mostly preferred its own Gods.) And Iceland came into the equation and did its own Viking things from 800 A.D.
