BE A MAN
Sönnungr is a symbol of masculinity, of ancestral Norse customs and traditions, and what it means to be a Norðmaðr (Norseman). In fact, Sönnungr is another name for Þórr, one of the Æsir, more commonly known as:
Thor, Norse god of thunder, battle, and men.
Following the retreat of the great inland ice sheets in 10,000 BCE, a few of us brave men, drawn to the North, traveled to the coastal areas of western Scandinavia known as Norðvegr (Norway). We survived in tribes, by fishing and and by hunting reindeer. We had a decently good life and we liked it there.
We pretty much minded our own business until King Haraldr hárfagri, who had become feudal, started causing us aggravation in the late 800's CE. So we jumped in skeiðar (long ships) and started exploring the world in search of new horizons. We ended up settling some remote volcanic island we called Ísland, and laying claim to Færeyjar (known today as Føroyar or Faroe Islands, a bad ass version of Iceland). Then we pushed towards Grænland (Greenland). We eventually also settled Helluland and Markland, now some unbearably polite place known as Canada, as well as Vinland, aka the United States of America!
Everywhere we went, we thrived. We had it in our blood to be wild and primal. We were (and still are) Víkingar. We managed to build countries and societies in some of the harshest environments on earth, where those of us who didn't return to Nóregr (Norway), to turn the land into the most prosperous country in the world, remain to this day.
