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.

    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.
