Shrine Offerings: Freyfaxi 2019

Much like every other subject, there is always going to be much debate in the Heathen community centered around historically accurate holidays as observed by the arch-heathens and how we should observe them today, but we must realize that the information available that pertains to specific holidays and how they were observed is severely lacking. Being left with the choice between not observing any sacred days at all because, well, we just don’t know, or modernizing our practices to fit the world we live in we, as a kindred, chose the latter. The calendar below is the best one suited for our hearth as it allows us the time and space to celebrate our sacred holidays alongside those in our families who may not be Heathen – as we believe that family, above all other things, must be first.
