Dressing Old Gods in a New World

In my experience if you ask most pagans or polytheists to describe their Gods – with few exceptions – you’ll get lots of clothing descriptions out of a historical re-enactors catalog.

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.

    Sounds about right. I recently finished American Gods, and it’s a toss up, but I think my favorite passage is the one where Mr. Wednesday and Easter are having a debate about whether or not people really believe in the old gods. Easter says they do, because she draws most of her power from people who celebrate Easter every year.

    He asks the waitress at their cafe what religion she is. She identifies as Pagan.

    He then asks her if she knows what Easter means. She proceeds to spout about how Easter being a Christian holiday and her coworker agrees that it means, “He is Risen”.

    He then also asks her if she does any of the things that actual pagans did when worshiping their gods, complete with animal and human sacrifices, and displays of debauchery to which she disgustedly replies that pagans never did those things.

    Essentially, he has won the bet.
