Ancient Calendar & Pagan Holidays: August 28th: An Icelandic Festival

Freyr would be honored with a great festival that would include horse races among other things.  Freyr was a god living in Icelandic culture. His festival was called, Freyfaxi, which was actually the name of a horse belonging to Chieftain Hrafnkell Freysgodi.

This was Chieftain Hrafnkell Freysgodi’s way of honoring the God Freyr, who presided over the land and it’s fertility.
