Gwenhwyvar and I went to the monthly Norse group meet and greet. It was a nice afternoon for it, and it was a small group this time, but good conversation and being near Central Market the snacks were also yummy. I got to disclose a bit more of my background and hear some perspective on that, and how it fits with the Norse/Germanic mindset. I also got to ask what a faining was. It turns out that one (tecnically) can’t do a blót without blood sacrifice (of an animal) because that’s what the word means. A faining is any other bloodless offering (of drink, food, incense) one might make instead of a blót.
