Once upon a time there was a widow who had two daughters; one of them was beautiful and hardworking, the other ugly and lazy…

Many classical fairytales begin like this. And if you can not remember the plot of this fairytale, there is no reason to worry - you have a chance to fill this gap.

Mother Holle (Mother Hulda) is a very old German fairytale, collected by the Grimm Brothers. In fact, it is so old that scientists consider the character of Mother Holle to have originated in ancient Norse mythology. Norse Mother Holle was the almighty queen of the underworld. Later, as it migrated to the German mythology, Mother Holle turned to the goddess of peace and fertility.

In this fairytale Mother Holle is no one else than an old warm-hearted woman whose responsibility is to… shake her bed thoroughly, because without this there will be no winter. Mother Holle lives in a blooming underground kingdom and helps hard working people to get rich and lazy people - to get properly ashamed of themselves.
