I know what your thinking.
All babies look alike. Fat little bundles of joy, masters in two disciplines - pooping and drooling. Well you would be surprised then, when I tell you the story of Huitzilopochtli, Huitzilopochtli who makes all infants look like babies! Huitzilopochtli (I dare you to pronounce his name 10 times in a row) was the Aztec God of war and protector of the Sun. His mother Coatlicue gave birth to him at very peculiar time in her life, she was on the run, pursued by her 400 sons and her daughter Coyolxauhqui. Under the pretext that they didn't knew who the father was (in fact as all bigger brothers and sisters - craving for the attention of the parent), they made a pact to kill her.
Again, I know what your thinking - "So my family is not the most disfunctional one after all!" - and though you are right, it gets better..
So Coyolxauhqui and her brothers cornered Coatlicue on the top of the Mount Coatepec.. and then she suddenly gave birth to Huitzilopochtli, he sprung right out of her, shining knight dressed in his armor (..ye I know..), he ripped his sisters heart out, cut off her head and threw it in the sky, thus Coyolxauhqui's head became the moon, and the stars... well guess what happened with her brothers heads.
