There is no Jotun equivalent to the Lights of the Winter Storm (Feb 2nd), as winter is often still as harsh as ever and not going to ease up until spring comes. The Vanir in the Realms often gather in the Capital to observe Lights of the Winter Storm with candle lighting, offerings and prayers, and a small feast. Jotun spouses and family typically show up, and the event is often open to the public as long attendees are respectful during the proceedings. Depending on how harsh the winter is, Dignitaries and ambassadors are the only Ones allowed to travel outside the Realm, so traveling from Jotunheim to Vanaheim to observe Lights of the Winter Storm isn’t always guaranteed.
For those of us in Midgard
- Sharing a meal with Someone (whether blood Family, chosen Family, or an Ally in the Realm) in a fashion appropriate for you and Them. This can be a simple meal, or you could opt for some sort of ‘treat’.
- Lighting a candle and saying a prayer for fire to return to the world (addressing Sunna or another member of the Family of Fire).
- If able, continuing sharing food and drink and lighting a candle once a week [typically started at Gnawed Bones].
- Traveling or journeying to the Capital in order to attend the Lights of the Winter Storm observance astrally may be possible. Alternatively, you may observe it in Midgard or (if appropriate) travel to Vanaheim to do so.
