YAMBE-AKKA

Finnish Dead Goddess

The old woman of the dead

She is the housekeeper for departed souls. It is essential the dead are given a very good send-off and are nicely attired for the occasion. There should be much drinking of beer.

GodNote: Sorry this Yambe-akka article is a bit short. We have sent our Data Dwarves off to find more nuggets of information. Updates coming soon.
