北歐 月神瑪尼Mani 狼來了 月亮就跑了

北歐神話的月亮故事很有意思,太陽神蘇爾和月神瑪尼分別被兩隻狼追趕,為了逃避狼的追擊,所以月亮和太陽不停地交替。月亮如果被追到了就會產生月蝕,而現在英文的Monday的來源,就是北歐月神。

The moon story of Norse mythology is very interesting. The sun god Sol and the moon god Mani are chased by two wolves respectively. In order to escape the pursuit of the wolf, the moon and the sun keep changing, and if the moon is caught, it will produce a lunar eclipse. Now the source of the English Monday is the moon god Mani.

希臘 月神 Artemis 舅子害妹婿 兄妹失和永不見面

希臘女神,阿蒂蜜絲,同時也是狩獵之神。她的哥哥阿波羅是太陽神,因為阿波羅的陷害,使得阿蒂蜜絲誤殺愛人,所以阿蒂蜜絲從此不再見哥哥。每當阿波羅想要找妹妹的時候,阿蒂蜜絲總是先離開,這也是太陽和月亮總是不見面的理由。

The Greek goddess Artemis is also the god of hunting. Her brother Apollo is the sun god. Because Apollo framed her favorite people, Artemis has killed her lover, so Artemis no longer sees her brother. When Apollo wants to find his sister, she always leaves first, which is why the Sun and the Moon always don't meet.
