SAMPSA

Finnish Agriculture God

Also known as PELLERVO, PELLERVOINEN

God of Seeds and Sowing

"Little Sampsa Pellervoinen,
He’s the lad to do the planting,
Sow the seeds and sow them thickly."

Like a little Johnny Hayseed, he wakes up in the Spring and dances through the fields sowing corn and oats. Then PEKKO takes care of the crops while SAMPSA has a well-earned rest.
