COVER YOUR EARS!!!! Or you would have had too if you were wandering about in Ancient times because today is the Festival of Mjollnir, in honor or Thor or rather, his hammer. This would have been pretty cool where the Norse were concerned because not only would they have battling contests, but also ritual ones. Can you imagine?
Today would have also been the second day of Callynteria in Classical Greece. See Ancient Calendar: May 19th.
A little announcement. Yes, Ancient Calendar is the same as Pagan Holidays. I just thought this title might be a bit more accurate. We also have our own page, located Ancient Calendar.
