Category: The 12 Nights of Christmas

These last days of the Raunachte, the 12 Nights of Christmas, have been bitterly cold here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Frau Holle, the Germanic goddess of the underworld and the wind, has been blowing relentlessly…the wild hunt on its last leg, now running back into the underworld.

Today is the Epiphany or 3 Kings Day. It is the day when the energies that have been whirled around and processed these last days of the 12 Nights, are anchored and “protected” so that they may become a solid foundation for the New Year.

In older days, and still today in the villages of and surrounding the European Alps, Today is the day the house and stables are smudged with the smoke of the herbs that were gathered at midsummer. This is to clear the energies and protect the homestead and all of the people and animals who reside there.

In some small villages the “wild journeymen” go on their Perchtenlauf, to chase the creatures of the Wild Hunt back into their own world.

Today is also the day children will dress up as the 3 Kings carrying a star and go door to door, singing, and writing blessings on every house door in the village. The blessing is written in white chalk (the spirits can’t see white apparently, making the blessing stronger) 2+C+0+M+1+B+8; Christus Mansionem Benedicat, Christ Bless this House.
