Have A Great Mánadagr!

2

Máni and his sister Sól (or Sunna) are personifications of the moon and the sun.  They are chased through the heavens by two wolves.  Sól is chased by Sköll (meaning “Treachery”) and Máni is chased by Hati Hróðvitnisson , most commonly shortened to Hati (meaning “He Who Hates Enemy”).

During  Ragnarök ( the savage battle that will bring an end to all things)  Sköll and  Hati will devour Máni and Sól.
