HISTORY OF BE AN ANGEL DAY

Angelic-type creatures have been known and immortalized many believe since the beginning of civilization. A lot of religions believe that angels are supernatural beings that act as messengers and protectors as well as other roles.

The word “angel” originates from the Latin term ‘angelus which means messenger of God. The beings have assumed many appearances in mythologies from the past that depicted them as human-like monsters, monsters, or even burning wheels.

Angels were immortalized in sculpture, art, and literature as well as the scriptures in mid-century, and the wings of angels appeared. European artists were among the first ones to make images of angels and in the year 1298, this depiction of angels was a huge hit.

While British and French soldiers were wounded in battles against the Germans in World War I, both sides reported seeing angels. The French soldiers claimed to have seen Michael the Archangel, whereas the British believed they saw Saint George. 

Both gods are believed to be the same by a segment of the populace. The mysterious angel was later christened Angel of Mons because of the place in which both armies recorded the appearance of the angel. In today’s world angels are not limited to the realm of spirituality only Their presence is felt everywhere.
