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 great stubborn Heathen of our Ancestors and remind myself of his dedication to his Family, to the old ways, the old traditions and to the Chieftains Duty. SKAL to Erik the Red.
