Are you ready for Haustblót?

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!
