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 Väinämöinen as he sailed off into the distance.
With a worshiping 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?
