According to Norse mythology, Thor is told to be the son of Odin, the All-Father and presides over thunder, lightening, wind, rain, fair weather, and crops. He is said to have been a large, hammer-wielding powerful man set to serve as protector of gods and humans against evil forces. Thor was worshiped even into the spread of Christianity in Scandinavia and a day of the week was even named after him, Thursday.
