In ancient times, our ancestors lit bonfires during this time year. It was called, among the Celts, the Winter Fire. It was thought that these massive fires would light the path home for their passed kin, a beacon to attract the spirits of their loved ones. Around these fires the Folk would gather and tell stories of their kin and their adventures.
It’s that time of year when the evenings get longer and the chill in the air signals the coming Winter. Our ancestors celebrated these Winter Nights with bonfires and stories of their ancestors.
This is a celebration steeped in many Germanic, Celtic and Norse Folk traditions. From leaving ‘snacks’ out for the household spirits to lighting bonfires to guide the good spirits of ancestors and heroes to their kin, this is a holiday not to be missed.
