The Wolf Hour


The Swedes came up with the expression first and I assume the Danes thought that sounded really scary and decided to name the most stressful time of day after it.

In all of Scandinavia twilight is seen as the most magical time of day. That's why Scandinavian horror and fantasy is sometimes called Scandinavian Twilight. It's not named after the Twilight books/movies but rather Scandinavian folklore.

I know that it sounds like a stereotype, but in Russia, it's time to drink vodka!
Seriously!
There are very unique clocks in Moscow - https://youtu.be/NoXHdivgoBk
In the Soviet pre-perestroika years, the sale of alcohol began at 11.00 in the morning - this was an hour when the wolf doll appeared on the clocks.

Sweden with background and ghosts and wolf would make a pretty good poster

Another word for twilight is "tussmörker", where a tuss or turs is a troll/giant/evil thing, and mörker means darkness. It's because a lot of vättar in swedish folklore cannot stand sunlight, so twilight is the signal preceding their arrival, and it's time to hurra home.

I think Denmark's dog might be a dansk spids

Wonder if I quickly time it right within that hour to make both moon and sun water in my dish and use its combination of the two for rituals.
