Thalia (pronounced tha-LIE-uh) is the Greek Goddess of gracefulness and charm, one of the three Kharites or Graces. She and her sisters, Aglaia and Euphrosyne, are daughters of Zeus and the Okeanid Eurynome. Thalia rules specifically over banquets and parties. The Kharites were attendants of Aphrodite, Goddess of beauty and passion. Thalia’s name means “good cheer”, and she shares her name with the muse of comedy and pastoral poetry.
