Sága and Sökkvabekkr

Posted: July 26, 2015 in Uncategorized

In Norse mythology, Sága (Old Norse: [saːɣa], possibly meaning “seeress”) is a goddess associated with the wisdom Sökkvabekkr (Old Norse: [sɔkːwabekːr]; “sunken bank”, “sunken bench”, or “treasure bank”). At Sökkvabekkr, Sága and the god Odin merrily drink as cool waves flow. Both Sága and Sökkvabekkr are attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and in the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. Scholars have proposed theories about the implications of the goddess and her associated location, including that the location may be connected to the goddess Frigg’s fen residence Fensalir and that Sága may be another name for Frigg.

Okay, Saturday – the one day that isn’t of Norse origin.
I want a change to this day to
1- SágasDay. See above – A day for poetry.Nice.

Other option
2-BaldersDay Baldurday .

It is strange that Christians never changed the names, but I assume that’s because they were too well established.

Can you imagine
Johnsday
Godsday
Jesusday
Matthewsday
Paulsday
Lukesday
Marksday
Or similar?

This whole dating system is not to my liking either!
Dating from Jesus birth ( Supposed 1AD ) is not good,IMHO.

Add 753 and we adopt a timeframe from the Roman times A.U.C .ab Urbe Condita ( http://www.klndr.org/history/roman-calendar )
Maybe we should adopt Chinese dating and give us back some self-respect. Christians do us out of a proper recognition of how long our human history is.
