For the pre-Christian Romans, December 25 marked their most important holiday, Saturnalia. [...] North-western Europe hosted festivities for the Nordic god Balder.

Unfortunate that the ancient Germanics didn't write their religion down in a Holy Book (and make it extremely ethnocentric like the Jews' faith):

The Norse didn't have this plant:

But you'd think we could have used something else i.e.:

Instead our only original sources are writings on stones:

This is my favorite stone:

The triple horn motif has been compared to a triskelion, or to the valknut symbol, and since 2006 has been adopted as the official symbol of the Asatru Folk Assembly.

Of course, there's a likely theory that they did have a Holy Book, and it was destroyed (the few runestones that were allowed to remain, were tombstones basically).

The AFA will eventually have to get a choir going and create songs to Baldr, and/or perhaps redesign these songs celebrating a new theory that Odin (the shapeshifter) came down to visit the Jews as Jesus lol .


Currently, our alternative Mr Savior Messiah songs are in a difficult to comprehend Norwegian lol:


Seems somewhat hostile at times too lol:

Balder has also been likened to Jesus Christ, likely due to the number of shared motifs between the two figures (a dying-and-rising god killed, though blameless, who heralds the arrival of a period of eternal peace).
There's quite a culture established with the status quo:

As a pagan, I have no problem with saying a prayer to Jesus, because I know that the spiritual essence of the God, Jesus, that is worshiped, is essentially a God of peace, and I can associate Jesus with Balder or any other God of peace.
We humans seem to need our imaginary friends. Nature is pretty desolate otherwise.
