Before there was Christianity and the Celtic world became dominated by men, Scotland was under the full influence of a most powerful female Goddess who was responsible for the creation of the Celtic World as well as the weather. You may know her only as "The Hag" but the Cailleach is so so much more than that! So buckle up your buskins, strap on your mutch, gather your staff and hammer and delve into the OG Goddess of Scotland!!
Here's the YouTube version of the audio clip Karen played at the beginning of the episode! And scroll down for a hilarious picture of the "mutch" hat Cailleach was known for wearing!
We don't edit the YouTube version so brace yourselves for amateur hour!!!
Apparently the Goddess of Winter sported one of these sexy hats!! So fierce! YOU GO GIRL!
And now you know why we are laughing so hard!!!
