Several Gods and Goddess are reverred around the time of the Winter Solstice. This includes Alcyone who is Greek Kingfisher Goddess. She nests for two weeks over the Winter Solstice and during this period all the seas are calmed and Baldur due to his connection with mistletoe. Frigga missed out the mistletoe, accidently, when asking that none of the plants harm her son. Loki took advantage of this and tricked blind Hod into throw a spear made of mistletoe at his brother which killed Baldur.
