A visit from the God of Snow

Yesterday, as I was writing my Yule cards, I glanced out of the window to see snow falling and it continued to fall thickly all afternoon. It couldn't have been more perfect!

OK, the snow didn't settle as much as in the photo (right). That picture was taken on Snow Day back in February, but for a while the street outside my house was transformed into something more seasonal than climate change has allowed in recent years.

And to mark the occasion of the first snow I have seen this winter, I am picking for The Bad Witch's God of the Week Aisoyimstan, Native American God of Snow and Ice.

According to the website
"He is the White God and 'Cold Maker' who blankets the earth with frost and snow. It is not easy to spot him at work as he is completely white, with white hair and white clothes. He even rides a white horse. You would need to be really close to spot the whites of his eyes."
So perhaps it isn't surprising I didn't see Aisoyimstan in person - but I am sure he was visiting. And he is welcome to come back on the morning of December 25!
