As many of us know by living on the East Coast, Ullr the snow god sometimes doesn’t treat us the way we would like or he pays too much attention to our friends to the West. But once in a great while he looks down and delivers the goods to the land that we most certainly cherish. But there are plenty of things we can do to help our cause. Ullr is a stubborn, fickle man, and we have to do everything in our power to please him. Urban legend has it that Ullr is a huge fan of snow rituals and superstitions. There are so many of them, that any of us can perform them, and most of them don’t require that much effort.

For those who want to be more civil than barbaric, some of the best rituals are ones that take us back to days in Elementary school. Wear your pajamas inside out before tucking yourself into bed. Not into wearing your pajamas inside out? Try this one out. You’ll have to break into the piggy bank and take out all of the pennies and stack them as high as you can on the windowsill. Do this when a storm is heading towards North Conway, supposedly the more pennies you have the more snow that will fall from the snowstorm.
The list goes on and on with snow rituals, too many of them to mention in this blog. Take a look online for other rituals and get out there and do your part. Cranmore needs your help, your fellow brethren of snow needs your help. Start your snow rituals today!
