Finnish Summer Goddess

Also known as PÄIVÄTAR, PÄIVÄ, PÄIVYT, PAIVA, PAIVYT

Goddess of Summer

With a sunny disposition to drive away those winter blues.

She has close connections with the Sun. Guess what? The Sun is formed from the yolks of the Cosmic Duck Eggs. See ILMATAR for the whole story.

Once upon a time there was a British Egg Marketing Board which came up with the amazing slogan ‘Go To Work On An Egg.’ This must have been poached from Finland.
