Midnight Summer Festival: My Favorite Mythology is...

Celtic Mythology

Compare to Greek, Roman, or Egypt Mythologies, Celtic Mythology could be consider as low profile due to lack of written record related to this mythology. However Celtic Mythology actually had given influences to other mythologies. It was widely believed that Roman 'stole' Lugh, the strongest God in Celt Mythology and transferred it into Jupiter. Either it's true or not, it's still debatable.
Many of us didn't aware that shapeshifter, fairy, changeling, trolls, and Tree of Life were actually part of Celtic Mythology. My interest in Celtic Mythology came from not-so-awesome background. One of my favorite RPG game in the past is Neverwinter Nights and I always use Druid as my character. I like Druid the most because not only they could fight, but they also have the power of healing and able to shapeshift.
I'm the type of person who when I'm taken interest on something, I will find information about it. So I dig info about Druid and it led me to Celtic Mythology and it fascinated me! The Ogham language, the Tree of Life, Shapeshiting ability, leprechaun, Morrigan, Danu, and of course, Druids.
So for the next 10 days let's celebrate Celtic Mythology with me! There will be authors talking about their favorite mythology and for every book I review during this event, there will be giveaways!
