Oh, Gods, where to begin…
Ostara is not a Norse Heathen holiday. TL;DR, you can blame Bede and Jakob Grimm for the confusion surrounding that. And most Easter traditions are, in fact, Abrahamic in origin.
Samhain, Imbolc, and Beltane are not Norse Heathen holidays; they are Gaelic seasonal holidays. Samhain marks the end of the harvest season and Beltane, the beginning of spring. Some ways that people today in Ireland, the UK, and the US celebrate Halloween and May Day do have roots in Gaelic traditions, but that would probably be better addressed by irelandseyeonmyth (if they would like to and have the time).
Imbolc was (probably) historically associated with the Goddess Brighid and later Christianized to be about Saint Brighid, who is herself a Christianized version of the Goddess. It has absolutely nothing to do with Valentine’s Day, which originated as a celebration of a Catholic Saint.
As for the days of the week, their modern names in English are indeed of Germanic origin, except for Saturday. Saturn is a Roman God and has absolutely nothing to do with Norse Heathenry. In Old Norse, that day of the week is rendered as laugardagr, or “washing-day”/”bath day”. (And no, that word is in no way related to Loki.)
Oh, and as long as you’re being smug about the days of the week, it would be more accurate to say that Monday was associated with Máni and Sunday with Sunna, rather than “monday was moonday” and “sunday was for worshiping the sun.”
This kind of attitude toward Christians and Christianity never makes anyone look good, but it’s much worse when you don’t even bother to fact-check.
I can’t agree hard enough with villieldr on this.
NO IT’S NOT
In the wild, wolves and crows (and ravens) are frequently found in each other’s company. The crows fly ahead of the wolf pack to locate prey. In exchange, the grateful wolves leave behind a few tasty morsels for the scavenging crows. There is also evidence that the two species simply enjoy being around each other, as wolves and crows are commonly observed exhibiting playful behavior with one another.
