This was on my wall at Facebook and I just had to share it. I really feel the Power and Majesty. The Lord of lords, the King of kings, the God Maker, the Most High, the Allfather, walking among us on Midgard (our world, the Earth). Here depicted with His two wolves, Geri and Freki (Old Norse, both meaning “the ravenous” or “greedy one”) and His two ravens, Huginn (from Old Norse “thought”) and Muninn (Old Norse “memory” or “mind”).
Norse Theme Parks is blending traditional attractions with virtual reality and augmented reality experiences at its new Copenhagen park.
Theme parks around the world are beginning to incorporate virtual reality into their attractions, in addition to using it to design rides. There’s a VR theme park being built in China. And now a startup is building a Norse mythology virtual and augmented reality theme park in Copenhagen, Denmark.
According to Peter Franklin Wurtz, co-founder of startup Norse Theme Parks, The Legendary World of Norse Mythology: Yggdrasil will blend traditional rides and attractions with virtual reality and augmented reality experiences when it opens in 2019.
Haustblót is the second harvest festival of the year where the emphasis is on rebirth. Think keeping seeds from this harvest to plant in the spring.
I observe Haustblót on September 23rd, the autumnal equinox.
The days and nights are now of equal length, but day will soon give way to night and darkness. Sunna‘s (she pulls the sun through the sky) time is over and now it’s time for her brother Mani (he pulls the moon after her).
My Nordic ancestors celebrated Haustblót and they also observed the autumnal equinox as Winter Finding – the beginning of winter!
Melt the butter in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add the pecans and maple, cook until toasted + caramelized, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and and let cool.
Add the heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or use a hand held electric mixer). Whip until stiff peaks form. Fold in the cooled pecans and any butter left in the pan. Spoon the ice cream into a freezer safe container and freeze 6 hours or overnight.
