Hospitality is a virtue. However our blots (fainings) and sumbels are often at a private home so we do like to ~try~ to meet people beforehand. We do this both for the comfort of our guest (you) and for our host. Rituals can be hectic events. Meeting first in a neutral setting helps foster a feeling of security for everyone involved.
What is a "faining"?
A "faining" is a bloodless blot or ritual. In ancient times, blots included the sacrificing of an animal. Obviously, this is no longer allowed in our modern world.
Horn Blessings and Sumbels...
While we will have a Valkyrie pass the blessed horn, we ask each bring their own horn or stein or chalice from which to drink. Additionally, we will have both alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks available for toasts.
