Icelandic Alfar / Elves

Postby DaRC » 20 Jun 2014, 11:59

I wasn't sure if this has been picked up by anyone from the BBC:
Most dear is fire to the sons of men,
most sweet the sight of the sun;
good is health if one can but keep it,
and to live a life without shame. (Havamal 68) Image

These stories pop up every now and again when the papers have nothing better to write about!

But of course the Hidden Folk exist, the people believe, therefore they exist!

These are Norwegian and Norwegian-Irish-Scots syncretic beliefs.
