Have you ever wondered where Thursday got its name? “Thursday” can be loosely translated as “Thor’s Day.” Thor is the Norse god of thunder, strength, and protection. So next time you’re going to arm wrestle someone, consider doing it on Thor’s day!
 
Join Ms. Eve as we learn more about mythology from cultures rich in diversity and tradition: Norse, Korean, Inca, Celtic, Polynesian, Egyptian, Hindu, Armenian, Slavic and more! We will discuss why Egyptians worshiped cats, who Aramazd is and what powers he holds, and why there are two very different types of Korean mythology. What is the true story of Maui and how did he help create the Pacific islands? You won’t want to miss this incredible journey through culture and country as we discuss the legends in mythology from around the globe.
