KUUAlso known as KUN
Moon Deity and/or personification of the moon.The Finns are at it again. They can't just have a simple Moon God like everyone else. No, KUU was formed from the whites of duck eggs laid in the crook of the knee of ILMATAR (Goddess of Air), who had been floating in a ocean for 700 years. Then a lot of glittering and shining went on and KUU became silver.
An impeccable source tells us that KUU is not actually a God, but simply the Finnish word for 'moon'. It certainly seems to be the word for 'month', although our Finnish leaves a lot to be desired.
Look, Finland is a weird place — all reindeer and Lapland Dancing. They also know more about Father Christmas than they let on too (see MARJATTA).
