Odin’s Slaying Of Frost Giant Ymir Is Reminder That Days Will Now Be Getting Longer
The Nordic God Odin had a hand in killing the Frost Giant Ymir. The picture is of Odin riding his horse who was named Sleipnir. Both Odin and Sleipnir seem to be doing well in the picture.
Here is a Random House Dictionary defintion of Odin….”god of war, poetry, knowledge, and wisdom; Wotan: the chief god.”
Here is Ymir—”…in Norse mythology, primeval giant and progenitor of a race of giants. Odin and his brothers slew Ymir; from his skull they fashioned the sky, from his flesh the earth, from his bones the mountains, and from his blood the sea.”
Killing a frost giant is also a reminder that with the Winter Solstice now behind us, the days will be getting longer. That is good news. Before you realize, it will be spring and summer.
Below is a picture of ice and winter. Seen this way it is very nice. Still, spring and summer are best in my view.
