Common Modern Folk Practices that are Heathen in Origin

1 Tooth-Faerie – Done as a sacrifice to honor the Alfar & Frey, there king, in thanks for the growth of the kids teeth to come.

2 Christmas-Tree – Actually a Yule practice to represent Yggdrasil. The ornaments are sacrifices made to the gods. Probably (maybe; just a theory) also given to appease Odin and the wild hunt. Notice how many ornaments are human like? Maybe this was so the wild hunt would take these symbolic people instead of real people.

3 Wishing-Well (Fountain) – Is a magickal practice used to place something into the 3 sacred wells (Hvergelmir, Wyrd, Mimir) so that it may manifest into ones Wyrd. Like as an example. If one wanted a car they could toss a matchbox car into a body of water while wishing for a new car and picturing what kind of car they want (and the tiny toy car should be one that reflects this model).

4 Piggy-Bank – Represents Frey’s golden Boar. Frey is the god of fertility and abundance (which is associated with money in modern times).

5 Drinking-Toasts – This is merely the modern survival of the sumbel ritual.

About Volmarr

★・・・・・・★・・・・・・★ Merry meet! Blessed be! 🌛🌝🌜 。・:*:・゚★, 。・:*:・゚☆   。・:*:・゚★, 。・:*:・゚☆ ☆Magickal Bio: I am a male Pagan wizard. I work with Norse deities mostly, but sometimes some of other pantheons such as Hindu, African, Greek/Roman, Buddhist, or Celtic deities. Even since my youngest days I remember sensing the magick in nature, and I had a strong knowing that witches could be either gender, and that most witches were good. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. I first got into Wicca, tarot, and magick back around 1991. I went on to study the runes, and got strongly into Asatru (Norse Paganism) for a number of years. Later I focused on Hinduism. I also had a Buddhist phase. I've also dabbled in astrology, Tantra, Voodoo, and yoga. 🌛🌝🌜 。・:*:・゚★, 。・:*:・゚☆   。・:*:・゚★, 。・:*:・゚☆ ☆More About Me: I am a non-smoker. I am vegan. I only mostly drink alcohol within rituals, rarely otherwise. I don't do any substances. I mostly prefer to use natural body care products. I like to eat organic and healthy as much as I can. I like fitness and exercise. I am child-free by choice, and that is something I don't plan to ever change. I am like a substance-free spiritual hippie with some gothic influences. I enjoy BDSM. My orientation within BDSM is as a Dom. Other things I like: yoga, history, travel, camping, astrology, and online virtual reality (such as Second Life) . 🌛🌝🌜
