Need non-racist-affiliated Viking jewelry and traditions for a wedding
February 4, 2013 8:15 AM Subscribe
My fiance is half-Norwegian, and all the family he's in contact with are pretty Norwegian. We're having a wedding and trying to honor each other's heritages. I need touches and customs that can be added to said wedding. Problem: while googling on the internet for Viking stuff and/or meaningful runes, I'm finding a ton of racist stuff. My fiance has done antifa work and I just plain hate Nazis. How can I find cool customs that have not been appropriated by horrible people, and how can I buy jewelry (particularly ring-type) that isn't going to racist pockets?

I really like some of the things I've looked into, around equality and fighting women and all such, but I'm pretty new to this mythology - most of what I know comes from the Prose Edda. Googling for this on the internet seems kind of like googling for a non-sex-related use of porn, though.
