Freja ( the wife)

Freja is the goddess of love and fertility. She is supposed to be married to an ordinary man, but you almost never see him. Otherwise she lives alone in the beautiful house Folkvagn. When she travels around in Asgard, she travels in a wagon dragged by two giant cats. Her big eyestone is her neck ring Brisingamen, which she always carries with her. Freja is the owner of many magical animal skins that she lends out to other gods. The other gods are borrowing those from her to transform into animals, especially birds. She also has a weekday named after her, and that’s Friday (fredag in Swedish). Don’t you see the similarities?
