Solamandur (June 13th – July 12th)

Feasts, dancing, music, and bonfires are common ways to celebrate. The solstice is also the night when Elvheim and Midgard come closest together. When the two planes touch, the Eladrin dance and mingle among the mortal races, occasionally leaving them gifts. Deep in an ancient wood, it is said the palace of the Summer Queen can be found in Midgard.

A feast is held on the first day of this month, dedicated to the gods as a celebration of the harvest where offerings are made to bid winter welcome in hopes of a good year.

A celebration is held by the Elves later in this month to honor their ancestors. This is often a private affair where close family gather.


Ylir (November 14th – December 13th)

Several events happen during Ylir. First, the winter solstice entails a feast in the name of Odin across cultures and people that worship the Aesir gods.

The Dwarves hold a similar feast honoring Njord and his son, Freyr.

It is also customary to mark the borders of your property with torches, as a symbol of light defeating the darkness (in many parts of Midgards, the nights become much, much longer than the days).


Jolmandur (December 14 – January 12th)

The third month of winter. The end of this month is marked by Skamdegi, the darkest day where frost giants roam Midgard in search of offerings or victims.
