At that the white-armed goddess Hera smiled
and smiling, took the cup from her child’s hands.
Then dipping sweet nectar up from the mixing bowl
he poured it round to all the immortals, left to right.
And uncontrollable laughter broke from the happy gods
as they watched the god of fire breathing hard
and bustling through the halls.
That hour then
and all day long till the sun went down they feasted
and no god’s hunger lacked a share of the handsome banquet
or the gorgeous lyre Apollo struck or the Muses singing
voice to voice in choirs, their vibrant music rising.

– Homer

The Iliad, Book 1, lines 717-727. All is not well on Olympus as a quarrel breaks out between Zeus and his wife Hera, over Zeus helping the Trojans in the war. But the tension is broken at a banquet when Hera’s son Hephaestus, god of fire, intervenes to make peace. All the happy gods end up roaring with laughter as the deformed Hephaestus, who limps because he has crooked legs, bustles through the halls pouring out sweet wine for Hera and all the gods. They feast and celebrate all day until sunset. Note that Homer often refers to the gods as "the immortals" – their immortality is one of the most important things that distinguishes them from mortal human beings.
