In my experiences with Thor, He's been loving, kind and protective of me, as the others have been. But what really surprised me was his personality. In the Lore, Thor is portrayed as big, buff and overall grim god when in reality He is like the biggest oaf ever. And I mean that in a good way. He's like,''One of the guys"
sort of thing.

I remember he came to me seeking a devotional kind of relationship. He wanted to work with me. At first I was hesitant but Loki pushed me into doing it. He said it'll benefit me and that I should expand my horizon. So now I work with Thor. Not that often, but I have an altar set up for him. His presence is very heavy and very strong. It sometimes intimidates me lol

Thor is the son of Odin and the Jotun Fjörgyn (Jord).

He is a god of protecting mortals agains the raw powers of nature, personified as Jotnar. In some parts of the Nordic countries He was a god of the air, the weather, rain and yearly growth (of grain), and fertility (tied to agriculture).

He was considered by the Vikings to be big and strong, handsome and dignified, and with a red beard and hair.
He is sometimes bad-tempered and rash.

He is married to Sif, and they have a son, Modi, and a daughter, Trudr. (Some sources say that the mother of Modi is an unnamed Jotun)
Thor is also the stepfather of Sif's son Ullr. Tor also has a son, Magni, with the Jotun Jarnsaxa.

Thor has a hall, Bilskirnir, in His realm Thrudvangr (some source calls it Thrudheim).
He has two servants Thjalfi and Roskva.
He has the hammer Mjolnir, which always returns when He throws it. He also have the iron gloves Járngreipr, the belt of power Megingjörd, and the staff Gríðarvölr
Thor drives a chariot drawn by the two goats Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr. He can eat the goats and have them resurrected during the night by wrapping their whole bones with their skin.

Now songs which mention thunder and lightning make me think of Him.

Two that come to mind are "
Thunder"
by Prince and "
Knock on Wood"
by Amii Stewart (which is an old disco song that still gets played on radio and in stores, you've probably heard it and didn't realize it, look it up on iTunes).

I suppose I was too busy oggling MCU!Loki. ;
p Then the mad rush to see "
Avengers"
ASAP! lol
(I didn't see "
Thor"
until it came on TV, so by this time "
Avengers"
was on DVD and "
Dark World"
wasn't far off.)

I didn't see Avengers until it came out on DVD. Then Thor came on tv. I got hooked, but by that time I had just missed Dark World in the theater. It was an agonizing wait for it release on DVD!

Back when Lithuania was pagan, we did have a god, the equivalent of Thor - Perkūnas. Think it's pretty awesome that I was born on day of Perkūnas, too :0 Well, he was the main of gods, a feared one but respected.
