Goddess Haltia Or Haltija


Haltia, sometimes known as Haltija, is a Finnish goddess of the hearth and the household.

Haltia bestows good fortune and health to people who welcome her into their houses; she stays in the homes of her worshippers under a roof beam.

When a Baltic Finn family moved, they brought the beam with them to guarantee Haltia's blessings would continue.
