Ancient Calendar & Pagan Holidays: January 19, 20, 21

_______________

January 19

We have an observance for Thor today in Norse culture also known as Thorrablót. On this occasion, Thor represents the spirit of winter.  Interestingly enough, Thorrablót was actually outlawed in Iceland in 1000CE or so. Two hundred years later, it resurfaced. Some common things you might see during this observance is lunch served in a wooden box. Aged shark, testicles of sheep, ewe’s face might be some of the things in it. Yum!

Today is Husband’s Day in many parts of the world.

*

And in Egypt, we will have the Festival of Lights which concerns and celebrates the Goddess Neith.
