If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Dver’s post on the Perchtenlauf she celebrated with a bunch of folks on New Year’s Eve.
Our household has similar plans, albeit on a much humbler scale, for tomorrow (which happens to be Epiphany or Three Kings Day) closing out our Yuletide observances, which began with Oski’s Day and have continued pretty much non-stop with Lucy’s Night, Modranacht, the Solstice itself, Christmas, the Kalends, etc. (Not to mention the 6 weeks of Sunwait leading up to it.) I’ve mostly been talking about Foundation Day here at the House of Vines, but there’s been a lot of sacrifices, feasting, gift-giving, reveling with the Gods and Spirits, and general festivities going on in our little home in the Hudson Valley during this season – to the point I’m almost ready for it to be over with. Almost being the operative word.
I hope you had a great time with whatever you celebrated. And if you’ve got the energy, check out Horn and Hearth’s posts on the house of Mundilfari and sacred time. Good stuff.
