Greeting the Day #2

The Regin are the gods of the North; the Aesir and Vanir. The word Regin means, literally, 'ruling powers'. The Alfar are the elves. Jorth and Nerthus are both names for different aspects of the earth. The word "hale" basically means health and Holiness and is the English cognate for the Old Norse word 'heill', of the same meaning.
