Alfablot

Post # 1
Is there any specific date(s) that we know of or that has been dedicated towards celebrating Alfablot- The Elven Sacrifice? Or if it is a single day or a carried out event/. Multiple sources I have read have a variance of different celebration periods, I would like to know when others most commonly or collectivley take part in this particular blot.

Majority of what I have seen is: the end of autumn- astronomically late december , beggining/ and end of October, beggining of Novemember. A site also suggest it modernly replaces Samhain/ Halloween.

From what we know of the blot itself was recorded after the Icelandic poet Sigvatr the Skald in early 1000. Info on Alfablot and Norse Elves: http://freya.theladyofthelabyrinth.com/?page_id=339

Frith,

It surprises me that this post has gone unanswered. Perhaps because there is a lot of transition in the world. People rarely grow up on a piece of land and stay there for life. We all seem to move around quite a bit. This blot is special for those who have that connection for the land. The time period is determined by the coming of the long cold nights and the finishing of all harvests and tasks connected to tending that land. It is a private celebration. One would reflect on the spirits of the earth, the ancestors buried on that land that tended it in the past and the efforts one put into a bountiful or not so bountiful harvest. The coming of winter is quite varied in different regions. Some places have it in October and some not until sometime in December. A good time to gauge when to start is when the leaves have all fallen off the trees, there is nothing left to harvest in the garden and all preparations have been made for winter. Sit with ones kindred and have a meal from everything you have grown and collected. Give honor to those in your kindred that have passed on the knowledge of how to tend the land before you and thank the Gods and spirits of the earth for what you were able to produce. I find this similar to the harvest feast of Autumn but on a very personal and private scale. Perhaps others can expand on this. I hope this is helpful.
