Today, November 11, is a minor Heathen holy day called The Feast of the Einherjar. In the United States it coincides with Veterans Day. In the Commonwealth of Nations this day is known as Remembrance Day.
The Einherjar are warriors who are slain in battle, who also have been chosen by Odin to live and train in Valhalla for the events of Ragnarök.
Honor, Courage, and a deep love for their folk carried the Einherjar through many battles. They had no fear, no thought of turning back, no thought of giving up. Remember the Nine Noble Virtues we culled from the ancient texts, among them are Honor, Courage, Perseverance, Loyalty, and Self Discipline. These virtues were instilled in the Einherjar – they are instilled in every soldier.
Raise a horn to the fallen and remember we are here because of their sacrifice.
Hail the Einherjar!
