Thanksgiving – A holiday for Vikings.

At Granlibakken, we’re preparing for the Thanksgiving holiday. Our Vikings in-residence, Bjorn t’Party, Frida Romabout and Lars a’Loud, are here to share with us their favorite traditions from the harvest.

I quite fancied the smoked pork with a side of fresh parsnips, turnips, onions and cabbage flavored with dill, thyme and marjoram. Since I have a sweet tooth, my favorite was porridge from barley and oats cooked with milk. And to make it even more decadent, I’d drop a dollop of butter on top.

Well it’s no surprise that you’ll always find me, horns in hand filled to the brim with beer. When Frida and I get together, you’ll even see me sipping the mead – a drink made from honey.

Yes, celebrations are certainly about the bounty. For me, they’re also about signing, dancing and storytelling. I can’t remember a grand celebration without family and friends at arm’s length, sharing tales and making new memories.

Our traditions exist here at Granlibakken with their generous holiday feasts, Christmas caroling and festivities and welcoming accommodations perfect for groups big and small. Whether you’re staying at home this Thanksgiving and perhaps cooking on your Viking range or eating leftovers while cheering on the Minnesota Vikings or joining us here at Granlibakken, we wish you a wonderful holiday. And don’t forget, everything’s better with horns on!
