Who is up for a Viking Apocalypse End of the World Party on Feb 22, 2014??
ATS Thread - Viking Apocalypse for February 22, 2014
This is letting ya'll know that the Viking Apocalypse is scheduled to happen on February 22, 2014 ... and some of us are thinking it would be a great
day to have an ATS Viking Apocalypse party.
We could wear Viking hats ... you know, the helmets with the horns on them.
OpinionatedB suggested making them out of TIN FOIL so we keep with an ATS theme.
Some of you all who live near each other could get together ...
Or you can celebrate on your own with family and friends ...
Serve Viking food -
Beef, mutton, lamb, goat and pork ... any kind of game meat like deer or elk or bear, boar, pigeon, goose, and squirrel. Nuts and berries ... North
Atlantic fish like Cod and shrimp .. HEAVY bread .. lots of veggies and spices which you can read about at the link.
But also -
Alcoholic drinks were heartily consumed, this being one way to preserve carbohydrate calories for winter consumption, and consisted usually of
ale. Hops and bog myrtle were used to flavor ale.
Mead was also consumed: honey was cultivated in southern Scandinavia, and imported by those in regions where bees cannot thrive. A drink which was
both very alcoholic and which is described as being sweet was bjórr. Fruit wines were occasionally made, being used for sacramental purposes late in
the period, and grape wine imported from the Rhine region by the wealthy.
Other beverages included milk, buttermilk, whey, and plain water.
I can't drink alcoholic beverages anymore, but I can eat some of what is listed.
And I can't get out to be with people ... especially in cold and flu season.
(My autoimmune meds and white blood cell counts keep me away from crowds)
But I plan on having a FAMILY Viking Apocalypse End of the World dinner party with my family.
So what do you think? Sounds kind of fun!! It'll be mid winter and folks could use something fun to do like that. And it'll be the ultimate
'failure watch' for doom porn ... with lots of good food and 'drinks' (for those who partake in that sort of thing).
