Thank you Coven Mates who have left exceptional ideas (including comments) for this Saturday, Jan. 10th, ritual (see previous entries). On this Saturday night, it might also be interesting to also realize that in the ancient Nordic tradition, the first full moon in January (the Jan. 10 full moon this year) is celebrated as "Thurseblot."
Thurseblot is a minor holiday that honors the red-haired bearded son of Odin (aka "the god of thunder"). Customarily, celebrants would prepare a small feast, surround themselves with good fire, good drink and good friends, and then they'd invoke Thor to drive back the Frost Jötunns (giants who are also nature spirits with superhuman strength). By Thor's power, spring could return to Midgard (our world, the place inhabited by humans).
Note: According to Wikipedia: "Thor, became a defiant symbol of Norse paganism during the Christianization of Scandinavia." Regarding the Jötnar (plural form of Jötunn) the giants often had claws, fangs, and multiple heads!
