The working man's God; very popular in ancient times and is still worshiped today by many Heathens and Pagans. Whereas Odin rewards intellect, Thor rewards hard work. He is often pictured as a mighty viking with a red-beard. His father is Odin and his wife's name is Sif.
Thor sends lighting, thunder and life-giving rain. He has always been a strong protector of His folk and gives gifts freely to his friends. He has a liking for farms, fields, forests, mountains and rivers. Thor has a hearty and often times bawdy sense of humor. He likes drinking, feasting, storytelling, and good company.
His favorite weapon is His mighty hammer, Mjolnir. It strikes lighting and roars with thunder when it is used and always returns to Hid hand. In both ancient times and modern times alike those who worship Him wear a Thor's Hammer about their necks as a sign of their dedication.
We even have a day of the week named in Thor's honor, Thursday.
Thor is perhaps, one of the most friendly and easy to commuciate with Gods. He always answers prayers and doesn't make you guess weather or not he heard you. When I pray, I pray to Thor.
