This blog will focus on historical accuracy and reconstructionism but also on the contemporary religion and sometimes wander into other heathenry, like Anglo - Saxon faith, Odinism, Theodism and so on.

In Scandinavia it´s common to drink Glögg, mulled wine at Yule. Thought i´d send you a recipe:
2 bottles red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz) 6 cinnamon sticks 2 oranges, halved and studded w/ whole cloves 1⁄2 cup sugar 1⁄2 cup brandy
Pour wine into a non-reactive soup pot. Add cinnamon sticks, clove-studded oranges, sugar and brandy. Warm over medium heat, stirring occasionally to make sure sugar dissolves, until the wine has taken on the flavor of the spices, approximately 15 minutes. Do not let boil. Serves 8-12. (Personal recipe By Edythe Preet )
Ps: In Sweden we often put raisins and peeled almonds in it and eat them with a tea spoon while drinking.
