November 9 2011 Folklore and Mythology Newsletter


Greetings to all folks near and far.

My latest article is "Mother Goddess Comparative Mythology"

In ancient mythology, the term 'mother goddess' is used to represent fertility, creation (giving birth to humanity), and motherhood. It is usually symbolic of the bounties of Earth, especially at harvest times.

You can read this article at the following link:

I have frequently gained my first real insight into the character of parents by studying their children.

Here is a very old Thanksgiving song:

Over The River And Through The Woods

Over the river and through the woods
To Grandmother's house we go
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh
Through white and drifted snow

Over the river and through the woods
Oh how the wind does blow
It stings the toes and bites the nose
As over the ground we go

Over the river and through the woods
To Grandmother's house we go
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh
Through white and drifted snow

Over the river and through the woods
Oh how the wind does blow
It stings the toes and bites the nose
As over the ground we go

Over the river and through the woods
And through the barnyard gate
We seem to go extremely slow
It is so hard to wait

Over the river and through the woods
Now Grandmother's cap I spy
Hooray for the fun
Is the pudding done?
Hooray for the pumpkin pie

- by Lydia Maria Child, 1844

Till next time, may your home be filled with laughter and may it ring from floor to rafter.

May you walk in Beauty and Harmony.
