Prior to being cursed to roam the earth as a ghost, how does Ingvar, the hero of Wytchfae Runes, celebrate the winter solstice in ancient Norway?
The Norse Yule festival began on December 20 and lasted for twelve nights, through December 31. The people celebrated the return of light to the world after the longest night of the year, while the father god Odin led the wild hunt with his magnificent steed charging across the night sky.
As a boy Ingvar filled his boots with hay and sweets and stashed them beside the hearth, gifts for the horse, and if in a beneficent mood, powerful Odin might leave him a special treat in return. After becoming a man, Ingvar joined with the other adults in a joyous holiday feast, replete with ale and a wide variety of food, song, and merriment.
