The Mythology of Sowilo
Baldur is the God of peace and light and the son of Odin and Frigga. Frigga made every object vow not to harm him, however, she thought the mistletoe so innocent she forgot to ask. When Loki heard of this he made a magical spear with a dart made of mistletoe. He then gave the spear to Baldur’s blind brother Hodur. Hodur by accident killed Baldur with the spear. Baldur will be resurrected on Ragnarok when Baldur and Hodur would reconcile and rule the new earth together with Thor’s sons.
