To kimmo...for someone far, far away that holds my heart in every single way...
Malina is the Sun goddess and Anningan the Moon god of the Inuit people who live in Greenland. The word Inuit means "people." Its singular form is Inuk. According to legend Malina and her brother, Anningan, lived happily together and used to play games.
But when they grew up, things changed. One night, while they were playing in the dark (as they used to do when they were children), Anningan, jealous of his sister’s beauty attacked her. During the fight, a seal-oil lamp overturned, covering Malina's hands with black grease. While they were fighting, she blackened his face with her greasy hands. He was very angry. Malina ran as far away as she could up into the sky, where she became the Sun. Anningan, still angry, continued to chase his sister in the sky where he became the Moon.
This eternal race makes the Sun alternate with the Moon in the sky. But occasionally, the Moon god reaches the Sun goddess and attacks her again, causing a solar or lunar eclipse. Anningan gets so angry with his sister that he often forgets to eat. So as the days go by, he gets thinner. Once a month, the Moon disappears for three days, so the Moon god can eat. He always returns to chase his sister again. This is how the Inuit people explained the phases of the Moon.
Kimmo darling, just see what they do out of our play games =P
