MARJATTA

Finnish legendary mortal

Mysterious Virgin Mother.

Christmas in Finland? MARJATTA is a virgin who became pregnant after swallowing a mysterious talking whortleberry.

As told in the Luojan Virsi, a collection of religious songs, she gave birth in a stable to a God-like child who went on to supersede VAINAMOINEN as he sailed off into the distance.

With a worshipping stable boy, a bright new star in the heavens, and a set of accompanying miracles, this all sounds very familiar. Where have we heard this song before? Or possibly after?
