2014 ULLR FESTIVAL

25 JANUARY 2014 ULLR

- the Norse God of Snow

 

The purpose of Ullr is to Celebrate Winter and the Abundant Snow. Ullr is hosted by Great River Outfitters. This is a FREE event.

In Norse mythology Ullr (pronounced Oool-er) was the Winter God. He was the son of Sif and the stepson of Thor, the “God of Thunder.” Ullr loved thecold, snow, and delighted in traveling over the country on his skis or skates. He also delighted in the chase, and pursued his game through the Northern Forests. So, this time of year we hail Ullr hoping he will bring us snow (okay A LOT of snow). 
