This Parliament Is in Session
did you know that a group of owls is called a “parliament”? Neither did we. On the same topic, a gathering of crows is known as a “murder.” The two aren’t related, we just wanted to put two drastically different groups beside each other. Owls are practically synonymous with wisdom. In Greek mythology, owls are symbols for Athena, who’s the goddess of wisdom.
So, what do you call the politicians in the UK, then? It is quite peculiar that a parliament of owls are thought to be wise and immensely intelligent whereas today’s parliaments are hailed as anything but. Well, by most citizens, that it. Let’s just hope that the murder of crows steers clear from the parliament of owls.
