    2g. Festa: Laws and Frya’s Day

    [014/09] This Festa has said:

    “All rules that endure for one ‘eaw’ — that is one hundred years — with the Bearer and his wheel may,[1] on the advice of the mother and by common consent, be written on the walls of the burgs. Once they have been written upon the walls, they are ‘eawa’: laws, and it is our duty to honor them. If necessity or coercion come to give us rules that are in conflict with our laws and customs, then people must do as required. But when the troubles have passed, then one must always return to the old ways. That is Frya’s will, and so it must be of all her children.”

    Festa said:

    “All things one wishes to set in motion, whatever they may be, on the day that we have dedicated to Frya, shall always go amiss.” Since time has proven that she was right, it has become a law that, absent necessity or coercion, on Frya’s Day, none may do otherwise than to celebrate joyful feasts.

    Notes

    1. ‘endure (...) with the Bearer’ (KRODAR: wheelbarrower) ‘and its wheel’ (JOL: Yule, wheel of time) — metaphor for enduring, explained on page [045]; KRODAR could be related to Chronos and Krotos from Greek and Krodo from Germanic traditions. Note that the constellation ‘Great Bear’ does look more like a barrow (Old English: baer) than like a bear; ‘eaw’ (ÉW) — Dutch cognate: eeuw (century).

    [p.23 cont.] This Has Fasta Spoken.

    All the regulations which have existed a century, that is, a hundred years, may by the advice of the Eeremoeder, with the consent of the community, be inscribed upon the walls of the citadel, and when inscribed on the walls they become laws, and it is our duty to respect them all. If by force or necessity any regulations should be imposed upon ne at variance with our laws and customs, we must submit; but should we be released, we must always return to our own again. That is Frya's will, and must be that of all her children.

    [p.25] Fasta Said—

    Anything that any man commences, whatever it may be, on the day appointed for Frya's worship shall eternally fail, for time has proved that she was right; and it is become a law that no man shall, except from absolute necessity, keep that day otherwise than as a joyful feast.
