Jól celebration in Norse household

Jól is a festival held throughout pre-Christian Germanic and Norse peoples. As a part of blót hold in winter, it is said by scholars that Jól's celebration is connected with the Wild Hunt, the god Óðinn and Anglo-Saxon Mōdraniht.

Since the Christinisation of Scandinavia, Jól became the origin of Christmas. Some customs and traditions such as the Yule log, Yule goat, Yule boar, Yule singing, and others have connection to traditions of older Germanic religion.
