Ancient Calendar & Pagan Holidays: December 4: Pallas Athena

Greeks had a Goddess who stood for wisdom and represented the Arts. Two things which was very important to their culture. A daughter of the Great and almighty Zeus, Athena was her name.  Considered to be Daddy’s favorite girl, Athena didn’t have your everyday, typical birth. Instead of being born of a woman, since Zeus swallowed up her mother, Athena was instead, born from the splitting open of Zeus’s skull. No worries, Zeus survived.

In classical Greece, a festival called, Pallas Athena, would have been held honoring the Goddess.
