Live a good life

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. — Marcus Aurelius

Feast of Ullr (Ancestor Blot, Weyland Smith's Day)

Many Asatruar in the USA use the national Thanksgiving holiday to honor our Gods and Goddesses of the hunt (it is deer hunting season in many parts of the country).

Winternights (Vetrarblot, Alfarblot)
In the old Icelandic Calendar, Winter begins on the Satyr's day between October (Hunting) 11th and 17th. However, this holiday may move about in the calendar so as to occur when the seasons are noticeably changing. Winter Nights also celebrates the bounty of the now completed harvest, but more importantly, honors the Alfs, Disir and Huldfolk. It also honors Odin and/or Perchta as…

Day of Remembrance for Erik the Red

October (Winterfyllith - Gormanudhr - Hunting) 8th

Day of Remembrance for Erik the Red

Praise the stalwart founder of Greenland settlements, and father of Leif, the founder of Vinland. Erik remained loyal to Thor even when his wife left the Gods and refused to sleep with her Heathen husband. Pause in memory of Erik today; drink a toast to his honor. No doubt he gets enough warmth in Har’s Hall to make up for his wife’s coldness.

On this day I will raise a horn to one of the…
