About how we got the Sun and the Moon
They say a long time ago, a young man named Xutil persuaded his mother to go up the firmament because he knew he didn't belong in this world.
They started walking on the roof of their house, and the more they walked the more the house grew.
When they were far enough from the Earth, Xutil told her mother it was time to parted ways. She should not cry, because they’d always see each other.
She would be the Moon lighting the Earth at night; he’d go further to become the Sun that warms the Earth and men.
That’s how we got the Sun and the Moon.
That’s how the Tseltales tell it.
