Unjustified revert[edit]

On 25 December 2012 at 15:27] 95.244.78.102 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) began reverting the merger of this article (originally at Heathen holidays, I believe) with Wheel of the Year.

Revert: it has been merged without consensus and actually 90% of the information has been lost in the merging. The "Wheel of the Year" article is not appropriate for heathens since it focuses on Wiccan and Druid traditions adopting their terminology

  1. 176.2.229.253 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) lodged the merge request over a month prior. No

objections were raised. In fact this article had received so little attention, it was practically abandoned.

  1. Most of the article's content was removed during the merge due to its Verifiability. Most of the article was unsourced.
  2. ...not appropriate for heathens since it focuses on Wiccan and Druid traditions adopting their terminology is not a valid reason to (re)split an article. If an article is too heavy in with one POV or its the terminology is too biased, fix it. Don't create a barely sourced article.

I would have reversed the prior revert on sight for verifiability and notability reasons alone (it's a very good idea to notify involved parties of major reverts), but Dbachmann (talk · contribs) has since moved the page to Ásatrú holidays and attempted to improve it. An article broken from general Paganism focusing on Germanic holidays is fine and the new title passes even the "Google test", but this article is still barely sourced (perhaps even worse than before). That is not acceptable. If people here do not want this article to be challenged again, it must be cleaned up, better sourced, and provide enough information to clearly indicate why it should be separate from the main/general article for contemporary Pagan holidays.

Holy Days of ASATRU RING MIDGARD[edit]

We are a group of like minded people who have come together to live our belief in the Nordic Germanic gods. Frankfurt is the founding place of our group, and lies in the centre of Europe in the midst of Germany. We commited to only 4 Holy Days in the year:

 * Yule (21 of December) to remember that Thor gave us the gift of life.
 * Ostara (21 of March) to pray to Ostara who give us springtime.
 * Midsummer (21 of June) to reflect our life with the Gods.
 * Harvestblot (21 of September) to appreciate our Gods for the harvest.

These dates are chosen to coincide with the beginning of winter, spring, summer and autumn. They have probably no historic roots, but we as Asatruar are living now, not in the past, it is our living faith in the Gods. For more information about our way to celebrate, see www.asatruringmidgard.de (most in German language, a good portion in English, too). May the Gods bless you!

Odinic Rite calendar[edit]

This is missing and was done before McNallen I believe, although pretty similar. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 195.188.112.2 (talk) 01:05, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
