The Pagan Book of Days for Thursday, February 15th

Faunus/Lupercalia/Sigfrid/St. Oswy

 

Lupercalia is an ancient festival of Roman Paganism. Ovid ascribes this festival to the rustic god Faunus, protector of agriculture and flocks, giver of oracles, and an aspect of the great god Pan. This is a day when animals help humans. It also celebrates the she-wolf who suckled the infants Romulus and Remus. In that Odinist calendar this day is sacred to the hero Sigfrid.
