Thursday's Tale: The Goddess and the Ogre
This is one of those tales that tells the origins of thunder and lightning. It was a different one for me and I quite enjoyed it. Though it did bug me that the thunder came before the lightning. Which we all know now is not the case. I've heard before tales of it being different gods fighting but this was interesting because a simple man (the hermit) has magical abilities. The fact that ogre and the goddess have to go to him to learn magic is unique. Usually it is man who seeks out the gods or mythical creatures to learn magic not the other way around.
