Join SASA and Dr. Irina-Maria Manea to learn more about Old Norse Yule Traditions!

Christmas is that time of the year when periodically more or less accurate comparisons between Christian celebrations and Nordic traditions of Yule pop up, taking the path of very debatable generalizations about Germanic peoples having celebrated a festivity Christians confiscated or that Odin might somehow have been a model for Santa Claus. Let us try to shed some light on such claims, go back to the sources and investigate what Yule or Jol actually meant and how much we can really know about it. Delve into interesting customs such as how breaking a new year resolution could have literally killed you if you were a Viking and more fun stuff. Source-based as usual. Bonus: modern Icelandic traditions and why they're the best.
