November in Saxons Calendar

November in Saxons Calendar

November was called "Wint-monath," or wind month, as this was the season of the year when the cold storms commenced, which were generally considered to last till March. It was the custom to light great fires in the open air in honour of the gods, and as a means of driving away evil spirits. The men are here seen approaching one of these to warm themselves.
