Notes on Heathen Holidays

  • Þorrablot – celebration of husbands and fathers
  • Góublót – celebration of wives and mothers
  • Dísablót – celebration of female spirits + ancestors
  • Sigrblót – 1st of 3 major yearly sacrifices, beginning of summer season, celebrates victories
  • Midsummer – celebration of life
  • Alfarblót – 2nd of 3 major yearly sacrifices, first day of winter, harvest festival and prep for leaner winter months
  • Jól / Yule – 3rd of 3 major yearly sacrifices, Odin and the Wild Hunt

Looks like Sigrblót, Midsummer, Alfarblót, and Yule all generally fall on the equinoxes so I can play with that. The other three occur in winter: mid-January, mid-February, and “depends on context,” respectively.
