October (Winterfyllith - Gormanudhr - Hunting) 9th


Day of Remembrance for Leif Erikson
this is a day that even the U.S. Government admits, should be dedicated to the man who beat Columbus to the shores of Vinland by over 500 years. Don’t let it slide quietly - write your local newspapers and share the word of the Norse colonies with neighbors and friends.

On this day I will raise a horn to the son of Erik the Red, discoverer of modern North America and a great star-ward Viking. SKAL to Leaf Erikson. Also let us not forget his sister Freydís Eiríksdóttir, who on her journey to Vinland demonstrated the true strength of the heathen Shield Maidens. SKAL to Freydis and the Viking Shield Maidens of Vinland.

hear hear! also St. Brendan! and the random Portuguese fisherman...and however many other people also got here first. Of course that's not even counting the PEOPLE WHO WERE ALREADY HERE.  No one discovered America: it was rediscovered several times by different people.
