The Sun and The Moon
The Sun and The Moon :
In the distant past, the moon used to be as bright as the sun.
This meant that mankind could not tell day from night, as it was always light.
There were all kinds of problems. People never knew when it was time to get up or when it was time to go to bed.
The Lord realised that was happening and at once ordered the Archangel Gabriel to spread his wings and veil the light of the moon.
And thus, the marks which we see on the surface of moon are scratches made by the angel's long wings.
