This will be my tenth or eleventh time going, but I still get excited every year just the same. Though I am only half Norwegian ( my mother was British, though possibly Norman ), I feel very at home with these fine people who hail, or hailed, from Estonia, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Greenland. They feel like family to me! When I have to leave at the end of the day I feel the same way I do when I have to leave relatives I have not seen for a while. Heritage can have a powerful pull upon one's soul.
Occasionally I even see someone wearing a Thor's Hammer or a Valknut and wonder if they wear them as religious symbols or symbols of heritage. I have often wanted to ask, but have always been afraid of offending them.
I encourage anyone living in the Tri - State area to come and join us if you can on Sunday the 5th of September for a little culture and fun. For these are truly our folk and friends !
