December 25, Christmas Day in the modern calendar, is the 6th day of Yule and is dedicated in the Norse calendar to Eir the goddess of health and healing.
Eir is one of Frigga's handmaidens and has healing powers. The ancient Germanics believed that the healing arts were only gifted to women and included knowledge of herbs, but also shamanic healing.healing does not just include the body but also the mind heart and soul.
Today as most of us feast and get together with friends and family, remember to be thankful and pray for your health and for the health of those around us. Also even if we are struggling with health issues or those around us are, it is important to be thankful for the health care workers in our lives. From doctors and nurses to dentists, massage therapists, and councillors, I am thankful for all those who worked in the health care field. It is great that so many people dedicate themselves to take care for others as a vocation.
So happy Christmas and a toast to your health dear reader!
