Snowmoon 3 — Charming of the plow. This is the date of agricultural ritual performed in Northern Europe. Grains and cakes were offered for the soils fertility.
Snowmoon 9 — Day of remembrance for Raud the Strong: Raud was a landowner in Norway who was put to death by (St.) Olaf Tryggvason for his loyalty to Asatru by having a snake forced down his throat. Raud’s lands were then confiscated in the name of the king and his monks. Raise a drinking horn in honor of Raud and all of his kinsmen who gave their lives, rather than submit to the forced love of the kristjan empire.
Snowmoon 14 — Thorrablot: Begins the Old Norse month of Snorri. It is still observed in Iceland with parties and mid-winter feasts. It is sacred to Thorr and the ancient Icelandic Winter Spirit of Thorri. Raise a horn to Thorr, and invite the mighty one to the feast.
