> Advent candles represent placentas
> Lion figures
Feels like half this stuff is just Scandinavian Christmas traditions with weird meaning assigned to it, and the other half is utterly made up.
I only skimmed through the video, does it mention anything about making rice porridge for the elves so they will be helpful and not malicious in the upcoming year?
> They start associating gløgg with blood
Not everything is about blood and placentas and shit, you fucking weirdos, holy shit.
Also, the straw goats are not fucking Pan, Pan is not a Norse god, fucking fuck.
And no, it doesn't last until New Year's, it lasts until January 6th. And there's also no mention of putting food, gifts and candles on the tree itself and dancing around it while singing.
Honestly, this person seems pretty full of shit. I'd take the contents of that video with a tremendous helping of salt.
EDIT: Also, Jul literally just means Christmas. It's not some special word that somehow denotes anything Pagan, it's just our word for Christmas. Damn Yanks, if you're gonna appropriate our culture like some kind of bizarro Halloween costume, at least get it right.
