LINKSMINE

Baltic Happiness Goddess

Lithuanian Goddess of Good Cheer

We are told that she is very popular at festive occasions, especially banquets and other celebratory feasts. Her name (which is similar to Lithuanian words such as ‘fun’, ‘amusement’ and ‘joy’) appears to mean ‘good cheer’. So she is invoked whenever anyone raises a glass for a toast.

LINKSMINE does not appear in any major mythological writings that we are aware of. Perhaps she is not a deity but simply a poetic personification of bonhomie. (Any connection to LAKSHMI, the Hindu goddess of good luck?) More information gratefully received.

We’ll drink to that. "Lets link arms and mine’s a beer." Cheers!
