Day of Egil Skallagrimsson


Day of Egil Skallagrimsson




Dec 09 Every year


9 of December - Day of Egil Skallagrimsson.Day of Egill Skallagrimsson, poet, soldier and magician of the Runas. Devotee follower of the great God Odin, the paradoxical character of Egil is the alive reflection of the nature of his God mentor. The saga of Egil Skallagrimsson reads, writes a poem, you do toast in her memory and honor to the Gentleman of the Runas! Day of Remembrance for Egil Skallagrimsson: Odin was his God, and the blood of berserks and shape-shifters ran in his family. His lust for gold and for fames was insatiable. Yet the same man was passionately moved by the love of his friends and generously opened handed to those who found his favor. The same brain that seethed with war-fury also composed skaldic poetry capable of calming angry kings. Can it be by accident that Egil worshipped Odin, the great solver of paradoxes and riddles? Indeed all Asafolk - but especially those who follow the one-eyed God of battle and magic - can learn much from the life of this amazing man.
