As the days grow short and the lean months are upon us, Windhelm looks forward to the annual holiday of the North Wind's Prayer. The temples traditionally open their doors and offer their services and blessings at half price. This year, the city of Windhelm is holding a gathering to give thanks for the success of the harvest just past (or at least to offer the traditional consolation that "It could have been worse,") and look ahead to the winter.

IC: This year, Windhelm is celebrating the festival on Loredas, the 15th of Evening Star beginning at the Twentieth-and-half hour of the day. At the strike of the Twenty-first hour, a brief invocation will be given at the Shine before moving out to some seasonable games; in this case, a Turkey Shoot and Competitive Boasting. Come and partake in the lavish bounty of the year’s harvest offered by local Clans and join in the revelry and comradery of friendly competition!

OOC: Event held on Saturday, December 15th, starting at 8:30pm EST. It will begin by the Shrine to Ysgramor in Windhelm at approximately 9:00pm with a brief invocation before the games begin near the merchant square by Oaken Hull’s Emporium. Local guilds and clans from the Skyrim community will be present with samples of fare from this year's harvest.

Nords exhibit their pride during the invocation to the Gods. See hymns in the post above for what was recited during the invocation. The Hymn to Kyne always gets the Nords' blood pumping.
