Lada (or Lado)

Lada (or Lado)

in Slavonic mythology, was the goddess of beauty and love, worshipped in Kiev. Lel (love), Did (return love), and Polol (marriage) were her sons. There are still traces of an idol worship in the yearly celebrated festival of Lada and Did, which falls on the Thursday before Whitsuntide.
