(Norse Deity)HERTHA

Also known as BERTHA, ERDA, EARTHA, HERTA, HRETHA
In a nutshell ...
Goddess of : Fertility, Hearth & Home
Hall : Unknown
Mount : Unknown

Danish earth Goddess. Possibly Goddess of cows, Hertha may have been Nerthus at some point... or vice versa.

Hertha is celebrated at spring equinox and Mayday but seems particularly keen on getting involved in the whole Christmas thing. Her sacred tree is the evergreen and she will come down your chimney during winter solstice disguised as smoke to help with kitchen wizadry. Unfortunately she will be gone by the 22nd so get your christmas feast prep done early, and check your slippers before she leaves as she has a habit of filling them with small gifts.

As all round goddess of household management and everything that is good, burn some fir boughs and invoke her during her three sacred periods for help with fertility, prosperity and hospitality, and send her number to the Pentagon - she is particularly big on diplomacy and also a helpful peacemaker.
