Today marks the first day of Yule. With the magickal Asgardian power imbued within me as a Har-Gothi, I hereby give you the power you need to live your lives in accordance with the Nine Noble Virtues. Shinku Hadoken! ༼つಠ益ಠ༽つ ─=≡ΣO))
This has been a sacred time for our people beyond the earliest surviving recorded history.
We decorate the Yule Tree to pay tribute to the elves and forest spirits. We hang Holly to ward off evil spirits. Frigga promises to kiss all passing under the mistletoe in celebration of her son Baldr returning to life. During this time of year when it is easier for gods primarily residing on the astral plane to enter the physical realm Odin would bring gifts to children who honor him and his teachings while delivering coal to those who do not.
This is our history. These are our traditions. Join me in putting the Jol (Odin) back in jolly this Yuletide!
I would likewise like to extend my warmest wishes to those keeping the spirit of Rome alive during their sacred celebration of Saturnalia.
