In Polish mythology, Czarnobóg (char-NOH-book) is the evil god of the waning year.
The name derives from "czarne", meaning black.
Czarnobóg is one of the sources of inspiration for Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain", where he is portrayed as the Black God of evil, woe, and grief.
In Polish mythology, Bialobóg (byah-WOH-book) is the benevolent god of the waxing year.
The name derives from "bialy", meaning white.
Bialobóg was said to appear in the form of a long-bearded old man, carrying a staff and dressed in white. He was said to assist travellers.
Bialobóg was said to fight his evil brother Czarnobóg twice a year for control of that year, with Bialobóg gaining control of the waxing half of the year and Czarnobóg control of the waning half.
Czarnobóg is also known as the God of Chaos and Night and as the Black God of the Dead.
Czarnobóg was the counterpart and brother of Bialobóg (byah-WOH-book), the White God of the waxing year.
