Thor (In Old Norse Þórr) is the almighty God of thunder in Norse mythology, he is the son of Odin and Giantess Fjörgyn. Thor is associated with the day Thursday which comes from the word Torsdag in the Scandinavian countries and in the Germanic countries it is called Donnerstag which means thunder day and comes from the word Donar, which was the name of Thor in the Germanic countries.
Thor’s hair and beard are red, Thor is associated with thunder, lightning, oak trees and strength, Thor is the strongest of all the Gods and the protector of mankind in Midgard. While Thor is the strongest of the Gods, he is not the smartest or the wisest of the Gods, and many giants tease or fool him as much as they can.
The Giants really love to make fun of him and because Thor is very ill-tempered it immediately makes him furious, it often results in Thor grabbing his hammer Mjölnir it hit them over the head, When Thor is enraged, it makes loud noises with sparks and lightning. This makes the giants crumble in fear and sends chills down their spines. Thor loves to fight the giants, and with his hammer Mjölnir, he always has the upper hand.
Thor lives in Asgard together with his wife Sif at a place called Thrudheim, the name means “Place of Might”. It’s an enormous house with 540 rooms, and it’s the biggest house known in Asgard. Thor and Sif live with their two children Trud and Modi, but also a stepson named Ullr who Thor adopted. Thor also has a son named Magni with a giantess called Jarnsaxa. Thor and Sif also have two servants a boy named Thialfi and girl named Röskva.
