NWK-Mother Night-2017

As the night before the Winter Solstice, this is the time when the New Year is born. We honor the beginning of the sun’s return and the breaking of Winter’s spell. This is a time to honor and celebrate our mother’s and ourselves as women. We honor the beginning of the Sun’s return and the breaking of Winter’s spell. Traditionally, this night belongs to Frigga, the mother Goddess and mistress of home and hearth, but also the ancestral mothers and female guardians of my family, my Dísir.  Celebrations center around the wife or mother of the family as she symbolically cleans the house in preparation of Yule festivities, invites both the living and the dead to join the party, and bestows blessings and gifts on her family and friends. Mother Night Parties follow a special blot and ceremony where the house is lit with candle light.
