Hermes Chthonius is a god associated with the earth and underworld. For Greeks, the gate to spring has been the Athenian festival of Anthesteria that was held for three days in the month of Anthesterion (February-March). Anthesteria is the ritual rite of the journey from winter to spring, from death to life. During the third day of the festival, the Greeks made panspermia. Panspermia is a multi-grain soup, which was offered to Hermes Chthonius and the dead. Packed with whole grains (whole grain helps lower cholesterol) this hearty dish is a nutrition powerhouse!
