Sword in my hand, Axe on my side. Valhalla awaits me…
There is no greater honor for a Viking than to fall on the field of battle. Because it was only then, that these mighty warriors could ascend to Odin’s great halls of Valhalla, or to Freyja’s fields called Folkvangr. It was the highest honor to be taken with the gods.
But there is more to being a Viking than ascending to the great realms of the gods upon death from combat, or child birth. There was the craft of their weapons, and shield making. There were great singers, and entertainer. (You try keeping hot blooded people calm without some entertainment.) And there were story tellers. The people who recited Grimnismal, a poem of Odin, and many others.
It would be amazing to go back for just one minute to see the fierceness of the Viking people. Or you can just wear this Sexy Valiant Viking Costume as you watch Vikings on Hulu. That way you will get all the excitement of the time, but not have to live in a hut in the winter. Or you can wow your friends when you walk into the hottest Halloween party dressed in this faux fur lined helmet with truly impressive horns. Just be careful, once you put on this costume you might start to feel like a true Viking. Wanting to go into battle, and to meet Odin in the halls of Valhalla.
