While writing this article I had so much fun imagining the gods in our times and therefore a small article with just some pictures got a lot larger. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. ๐Ÿ˜Š

This idea came to me after my last article, where I talked about the Greek goddesses and tried to include facts that don't a lot of people know. โœ๏ธ
