The Viking pantheon is actually composed of two warring tribes of gods, the Aesir and Vanir, who duked it out and then made peace (Odin’s Aesir won, go figure). The Aesir are from Asgard, and the Vanir from Vanaheim. Although Asgard is spoken about in great detail in the Eddas, not so much information is available on Vanaheim, which makes this Girl Scout origin myth all the more plausible.

I mean, doesn’t Vanaheim just sound like a place where Girl Scouts come from?
