    Happy Wolfidays to All

    Has anyone heard of that famous pack of eight Uratha whose totem takes the shape of a bearded giant draped in red? A spirit of generosity and hunger, of gathering good things and reveling in them with those who are kin and those who have need?

    Who are those eight Uratha, I wonder?

    So there's a lot of werewolf-friendly symbology in old Yule celebrations.

    Any legends of wolves with two sets of wings?

    Just curious.

    Some Yule Time monsters - only most looks to me as much more Changeling antagonists than Werewolf Preys - but maybe you have some ideas on those beings for WtF?

    Dragon Idigam IS created - at least in this version - from serpents/dragon myths of Christianity that is collecting them on it's way from Constantinopole to Uppsala in Sweden. There is strong theme of 'Christanity Invading North' in this chronicle.

    But what ARE myths about Christmas in circa 800 A.D. in those times in Europe? Beside that Roman Christians just changed their Saturnalia for the Christmas celebration for convenience reasons, when Empire mass converted to Christianity.

    Aside form Christmas, you do have the nearby Winter Solstice (in the Northern hemisphere, at least), where day is at its shortest and night its longest.

    A hunt of Helions seems like it would provide some fortuitous omens for the oncoming Winter season.

Action takes place in February of 800 A.D. in (future) Sweden, so lot's of snow and trees. But how Dragons relates to Christmas, hmmm...

    Maybe something with Yule traditions? It's Scandinavian in origin...

    I know this thread is ancient, but i just want to point out that Christmas is a full moon this year. Which, given the many werewolf holiday legends mentioned in this thread, makes me think that Luna would be gifting a lot of rahus with the first change this year in the WoD.
