Tonight is the Long Nights Full Moon. Beware of draugar—they live in burial mounds & reanimate on nights like tonight. BUT they can be shapeshifters, so how can you be safe unless you are alone? They also inhabit dreams. Beware of going to sleep.

The Cherokee call this Snow Moon, Usgiyi, ᎤᏍᎩᏱ. The spirit being, “Snow Man”, brings cold & snow. Shoveling snow? I’d rather face draugar.

Take care, my friends.
