Yuletide Shopping Guide – Deck the Halls

After spotlighting resources for the DIYers, crafters and makers, and a highlighting themed goods for Krampus, I’m now moving onto decking the halls in the Yuletide Shopping Guide. The guide features items polytheists would enjoy seeing in their homes or under their tree this yuletide. All with the hope of both spreading some holiday cheer in a difficult year, but also to hopefully lift up some of the artisans in our midst too.

National Museum of Denmark

Years ago, my oath sister and I were able to visit the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen, and promptly cleaned out the gift shop. Seriously, that place is dangerous to the wallets of those with devotions in the Northern Tradition. With a wide variety of artifacts housed within the museum’s collection, there’s some really great replicas at hand: statuary, jewelry, scarves, and a range of other items. But for today we’re spotlighting items you can use to help trim your trees (I own a few myself!). You can navigate the site in English, and they will ship internationally.

Ornaments from the National Museum of Denmark

They have a variety of glass ornaments available: Variant 1 of the Gallehus Horns, Variant 2 of the Gallehus Horns, Gold Mjollnir, and Silver Mjollnir. In addition to the glass ornaments, they also have some fabric and sequins accented ornaments depicting the Gallehus Horns, and the Trundholm Sun Chariot.


Frigga’s Finery

Frigga’s Finery specializes in products for Northern Tradition polytheists including stockings, ornaments, table/altar cloths, wreaths, etc. In addition to holiday decor they also offer garb, ritual blot bowls, purses, drinking horns, and more. 


Sunwyn’s Sundries

Sunwyn’s Sundries offers a range of goods, but features several ornament stuffies of Huginn & Muninn, Krampus, Brigid’s Cross

Yuletide Shopping Guide – Krampus

I have decided to put together a Yuletide Shopping Guide as a spotlight of resources for DIYers, crafters and makers, as well as items that polytheists would enjoy seeing in their homes or under their tree this yuletide. All with the hope of both spreading some holiday cheer in a difficult year, but also to hopefully lift up some of the artisans in our midst too.

In parts of Europe the night of December 5th is when the Krampus makes his appearance, terrorizing naughty boys and girls. The morning after is known as Saint Nicholas Day, where many children wake up to little treats left out for them in their shoes. Since Saint Nicholas as gift giver appears to be a rebranding of Odin, my household has taken this day back and observes it as Oski’s Day.

Wild Hunt figures tie into the Santa Claus mythos (and you can read up on that more with Wyrd Dottir’s post), as do the hordes of creatures accompanying them like the Lussiferda, the Perchten, or the Krampus. So in honor of Krampusnacht which is this Friday, here’s a few goodies that are Krampus themed.
