Holda

[I’m sharing how I’ve known and interacted with Everyone, starting with the Aesir. The Vanir will be next, then the Rokkr, and then the category where I put those Who don’t seem to pick just one category.]

I initially found out about Her through looking in the Other category on nothernpaganism.org and finding Her shrine. I primarily associate Her with winter, and hail Her on the 6th day of the 12 days of Yule. I’ve received confirmation on cleaning on Her behalf, and I’ve found Unfuck Your Habitat (see this post, and this one) – the goal was to do it once a week, but I’m admittedly not good at keeping with this.

I initially got the message to knit and donate a few items from Sigyn, but in the updating of what I do for Everyone in a past year (or two?), Holda picked up this request instead. I’m starting off with two scarves and a cowl as my donation goals. I had gotten a vague message that I needed to find a prayer for Her to use during the winter season, but I haven’t gotten any other info (and have gone through at least one devotional lockdown, so this may or may not still apply).

I have tumblr tags for Her (Holda, winter, knitting), and I had some physical stuff out. I’ve been working on preliminary packing, though, so I don’t currently have these items out right now. (I think I’ve also done some updating, but I don’t have pictures from that.) These pictures and descriptions are from a post last year where I shared them.

1: Two different sized potholders that seem wintry.

2: A bottle of melted snow that I collected this past winter (winter of 2013-14) that currently resides inside the container with the bird and holly. It’s technically an extra container for collecting drained grease from the kitchen.

3: Putting everything together. The little blue candle is smaller than the one I had been using, so its potholder looks overly large for it.
