THE ELEVENTH DAY OF YULETIDE - December 30
The eleventh day of Yuletide, we light a candle and remember Loyalty.
Elder Germanic society was based on a web of Loyalty - to family and tribe, to a chosen leader, to the Gods and Goddesses. The same applies to us today. We should give Loyalty and expect it of others, reciprocating in a dynamic exchange that grows continually stronger. Loyalty is intimately connected to many other values; it requires Steadfastness and Truth in our oaths, and without it the Community falters and dies. Where there is no Loyalty, there is no honor.
Let us be Loyal!
This day I will pour a libation to Wiglaf, the warrior who stood with Beowulf when all others fled in terror.
I will be Loyal this day.
