We’re back!

Yes, it is true – we have not faded away.

Some folks had rougher 2020s, some folks had rougher 2021s. We fell into the latter category, but have hope for 2022. And so, we’re back with a new episode (and it won’t be a year until the next one – honest)! Part of the delay was also just the sheer epicness of our topic – der Lewesbaam. Yes, instead of a holiday-centric episode, we’re breaking down the Urglaawe world tree. And we hope you enjoy it.

Entschtanning 2021

Welcome back! In our first anniversary show, we take a deeper look into the traditions of Entschanning, including the Kannsege, where we activate our Butzemenner.

For the naming convention explained in more detail, have a look at https://urglaawe.blogspot.com/2012/02/butzemann-naming-convention.html

Also, in case anyone is interested in Grundsau art, feel free to go look at https://www.rachelyoderart.net – she does fabulous work, as seen by these gorgeous pieces we have from her.

The Winter Grundsau

Hallicher Grundsaudaag!

Allelieweziel and Ewicher Yeeger

Or, why we have a God of Death, Scrapple, and Second Chances. The Dunkelheft is here, and we have a bit of spooky, as well as a cautionary tale.

As part of Allelieweziel, we honour our forebears. This twinkling haunted village was inherited from my mother, and is part of that practice for me every year.


It’s July, and that means it’s time for hay-making! We dive into the Zusaagpflicht, why grass is so important, and how to keep oaths to the Maerriche.

Another month has passed, and we’re ramping up the action, both inside and out. This episode we look at Lenzbutzerei (Spring Cleaning), Wonnezeit, and learn how our Butzemenner defeat King Frost.

If you would like more information on Wonnezeit, a brief description can be found at https://urglaawe.blogspot.com/2019/04/wonnezeit-begins-at-sundown.html

Grumbieredaag, Oschdre, and Ziegdaag

Three holidays all in one! We’re back with our second episode, which explores the crowded month of March in the Urglaawish year. We look at Grumbieredaag (March 17th), Oschdre (the Vernal Equinox), and Ziegdaag (April 1st), which we’ve adapted from the Deitsch tradition of “Flitting Day”, when tenant farmers would move their families.

For more info on the holidays discussed here, and lore on Der Bariyeharr, and an explanation of Ziegdaag historically: http://deitschmythology.blogspot.com/2015/03/oschdre-where-color-comes-from-origin.html


The planting has started! Potatoes aren’t terribly easy to photograph, but the baby cabbages are pretty.
