I was asked to expand on this... not much is written of him...
and most of it is confusing...

In one book it said he was more popular than Oden in worshipers...
but than why arent there major myths about him?

He is an archer! WOOT! He also skiis and hunts!

He is one of the Gods of Asgard.

Its said he shares rule of Asgard with Oden, having summer
and Ullr, during the winter!**

He may have been Sif's son and his stepfather Sif's husband Thor... but... tales confict.

It is also said that He married Skaldi the winter Goddess
whos name means Shadow.

He is called 'God of the Shield'

His rune is Eihwaz! (EI F AE)
(which looks like a backwards z)
and is the Yew Tree!
from which the best bows are made!
Its also a symbol of immortality!
Its colour is black.
Its the symbol of Potential and Air.

Ullr, Uller, Ull, Wulder - ON. OE. Winter God of archery, skiing and yew magic.Stepson of Thor, from a previous union between Sif and Orvandil, a star hero. This puts Ullr among the Vanir. His name means "The Brilliant One" and he is associated with the Aurora Borealis. He has been identified as a very archaic God of death in Norway. At some time in history, Ullr was held to be just as important as Odin, and in winter he was considered to be the ruler in Asgard.

Also known as Ull, Ulle, Ullr, Vulder, Holla and Oller, his name means glorious. The Norse God of winter, skiing, death and hunting. His domain in skiing did not only include skiis themselves but ski shoes (although I don't quite see how any celestial divination was needed in these). This domain was more of a "on the side" job, he was far more important as the god of hunting and winter.

Ullr was always depicted on skiis with a longbow made of yew, Ullr was an honourable God who personified the Wild Hunt that the Vikings not only used for food, but in battle to "hunt" down their enemies and sacrifices. Thus, Ullr was often related to battle and to duels, and would quite often be called upon before them. The Norse would pray to Ullr for a "winter blessing", which generally meant a good hunt to get their hungry people through the winter. In this winter and skiing aspect, he was almost identical to Skadi. The difference being was that Ullr, born to Thor and Sif, was an Aesir, whereas Skadi, born to Thiadi, was a Jotun. Regardless, the two were closely related, hunting together and somewhere along the line they were married.

Ullr gained his death aspect from the fact that in the summer he would travel to Helheim (Niflheim) to live with Hel, daughter of Loki and the goddess of death. Those that died during the winter would be taken to Helheim by Ullr when he left for it at the beginning of Summer (assuming, of course, that they hadn't already been selected to travel to Valhalla by Odin and Freyja's Valkyries). Where Loki was depicted as a malignant trickster, and Hel depicted as the spawn of evil, Ullr was not branded for consorting with these two. He was considered a good and honourable God, and was never at all related to the other two in a negative way.

In Winter, however, he went from consorting with the underground to transcending to the heavens. Odin always left Asgard in the Winter, and Ullr would take his place. When Odin left, he also left Freyja behind, and Ullr would take her in his absence. Although Ullr was considered a good and honourable God, he was not a very cheerful God, and he very rarely bestowed a bounty upon Midgard unless the people prayed very hard; and even then he was known to completely ignore them if he was in a bad mood (which was more often than not). In the Winter Ullr not only took over from Odin, but seemingly absorbed his duties. Where Odin was worshipped as the God of the hunt in Summer, depicted as being the initiator and leader of the wild hunt, in Winter it would be Ullr leading the hunt. Thus Ullr is almost an Odin alter ego; although it is also possible that Ullr is an older Odin that became less important, as in the early Germanic tribes Ullr, not Odin, was the chief God.

Ullr's month was the Yule month, the month before the Winter Solstice. Ullr was absorbed into Christianity as St. Hubert, patron saint of the hunt.

Ullr as an elf

http://community-2.webtv.net/Toomuwik/Ullr/index.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ullr

In Viktor Rydberg's idiosyncratic Teutonic Mythology Ullr is the son of Sif and Egill-Örvandill, half-brother of Svipdagr-Óðr, nephew of Völundr and a cousin of Skaði. His father, Egill, was the greatest archer in the mythology, and Ullr follows in his father's footsteps. Ullr helped Svipdagr-Eiríkr rescue Freyja from the giants. He also ruled over the Vanir when they held Ásgarðr during the war between the Vanir and the Æsir.

While most of Rydberg's theories are dismissed as fanciful by modern scholars his idea that Ullr is connected with the elves of Völundarkviða is not absurd. Both seem associated with skiing and hunting and since Ullr's father is not identified as one of the Æsir he may have been of another race.

He came to me when I was 9 yrs old.
and I first confused him with Elric...
well I was dreaming of an albino swordsman!
and read Moorcock's books soon after...

Than I thought my God might be Loki...
was confused for awhile...
think Loki was enjoying that! he is a tricky God...
I still like Loki! But not as much as Ullr!

Finally in a ritual I saw...
Him with my Goddess arm in arm smiling at me... and I figured it out!

If you want to argue with me about his looks...
all I have to say is this is how He appeared to me!

Ullr - The Man The Myth
You know the feeling-you are on your skis working the rhythm, enjoyin' the speed, and suddenly for a few turns, you feel immortal. The feeling is difficult to describe but perhaps you sensed a little inspiration from Ullr…the god of choice among Scandinavians and backcountry snow lovers alike.

Ullr, a.k.a. Uller, Ullin, Holler, Vulder, and Ull, is a pre-Viking era Nordic God and he kept fine company with the likes of Odin, Thor, and other esteemed deities. Among his many skills, he was the god of skiing, archery, hunting, and was known to be quite promiscuous (which he may have inherited from his mother Sif, the Goddess of Fertility). Sure, Ullr had some neat traits but in our world of plastic boots, cap skis, laser sights, and Viagra, it's easy to dismiss them as the quaint skills of some randy old god. Nevertheless, think back to the days when being noted as a master archer was no slight task.

At the time, Ullr was competing with the likes of Thor, who brandished a hammer capable of shooting lightning bolts in battle (sort of like skiing old Karhu XCD's while your buddy is on a pair of AK Launchers). Then there was Loki the trickster, who could assume the form of animals to deceive or escape the wrath of the gods. Despite his lack of supernatural powers (aside from skiing), Ullr was the name invoked to warrant good luck when undertaking a duel. His name, which means glorious or dazzling, clearly reflects his abilities, and myth has it he once held the seat of the highest god. His character and the legends associated with it are pervasive throughout the historic tales of the Vikings, Goths, Saxons, and ancient Britons. Basically, Ullr rules!

In addition to dueling, Gods were also known to have a penchant for good times, and Ullr, when he was not out making fresh tracks, was known to flirt with the Goddesses on a regular basis. His sexual prowess is legendary and if modern pop culture is any indication, then the goddesses may well have been sporting horns and pointy metal bras-necessitating some smooth talkin' and delicate moves on Ullr's part (and you thought the obstacle course on Survivor was tough). As an historical aside: Ullr's sexual prowess seems to support archaeological evidence that polypropylene underwear has not existed until recent times given the effect sweaty polypro has on most folks' amorous inclinations. However, most important to us snow lovers, Ullr is the god of skiing. As the undisputed master of skis, he often used his skill to escape from foes or track down prey in addition to shredding fresh POW. In a sport intimately tied with Scandinavian tradition, it is no wonder that in Norway there are a number of place names that incorporate the name of Ullr.

In the days of Ullr, skis were not entirely what we'd recognize today. In fact, what we know as skis probably did not evolve until the last century. In the time of the gods, skis were akin to two planks of wood-one wrapped with cord to provide traction. As people were often hunting or at war, a single ski pole was often used, allowing a free hand for a weapon.

It is said that Ullr was such a great skier that he would streak across the sky leaving the brilliant stars as his trails (they obviously had some fine powder days). Though very skilled, Ullr guarded his knowledge closely and refused to show the other gods how to ski. Luckily for us, he let the secret out of the bag and we will all be soon celebrating his glory. Next time you are trying to bash through some wind crust or plunge head first into fresh waist deep powder, be sure to invoke his name and remember - ULLR RULES!

Ull
(Norse Mythology)

Ull (or Ullr or Uller) was the son of Thor's wife Sif (and Thor's stepson). His name means "Glory" and he was the god of archery, hunting, duelling, and skiing. He lived in Ydalir ("Yew Valley") and his weapon was a bow made from yew.

After Ull's soul mate Skadi (goddess of winter, hunting and skiing) left Njord, she married Ull. One can only assume that their marriage was happier than her first one...

Ull must have been a very popular deity in Scandinavia because of the frequency of his name in place names (e.g. Ulstein, "Ull's Rock").

http://www.pantheon.org/articles/u/ull.html


Also known as Ull, Ulle, Ullr, Vulder, Holla and Oller, his name means glorious. The Norse God of winter, skiing, death and hunting. His domain in skiing did not only include skiis themselves but ski shoes (although I don't quite see how any celestial divination was needed in these). This domain was more of a "on the side" job, he was far more important as the god of hunting and winter.

Where Loki was depicted as a malignant trickster, and Hel depicted as the spawn of evil, Ullr was not branded for consorting with these two. He was considered a good and honourable God, and was never at all related to the other two in a negative way.

In Winter, however, he went from consorting with the underground to transcending to the heavens. Odin always left Asgard in the Winter, and Ullr would take his place. When Odin left, he also left Freyja behind, and Ullr would take her in his absence. Although Ullr was considered a good and honourable God, he was not a very cheerful God, and he very rarely bestowed a bounty upon Midgard unless the people prayed very hard; and even then he was known to completely ignore them if he was in a bad mood (which was more often than not).

Ullr's month was the Yule month, the month before the Winter Solstice. Ullr was absorbed into Christianity as St. Hubert, patron saint of the hunt.



In addition to all the names listed above, Uller was also known as Ullen or Ullin in Norway. All these name variations give us hints that he was a very old god. The fact that he has given name to numerous places in Scandinavia is another indication of that. Yet he doesn't seem to feature in any of the cool stories from Norse mythology, there just isn't as much lore about him as there is about Odin, Thor and Freya. Uller probably belongs to an older generation of gods, along with Tyr and Heimdall - the people who worshipped them lived in Scandinavia before the arrival of the Vikings

The modern form of the name Uller, Ull, is not at all used for naming children in Norway (or in other parts of Scandinavia, for that matter), despite the revival of other old names from Norse mythology. The reason for this is simple: The name means "wool" in modern Norwegian. There are some derivations in circulation, however. Ulrik for boys and Ulla for girls are good, normal names. But it is in place names that we truly see the influence of the old god.

Uller seems to have been a really popular god in the very old days, especially in the eastern part of Norway, where heaps of places are named after him. Only in the Oslo area, several wellknown places bear his mark:
Ullern is a fashionable part of the city with its own church, which is therefore indirectly named after the Norse god.
Ullevål is world famous in Norway for its football stadium, where national matches are played. The name means Uller's field; which is quite appropriate for a god of sports.
Ullersmo, the location of a national prison, has the same meaning.

In the rest of the country, a name like Ullinshof - Uller's temple - is found in several places, many of them churches and vicarages. The churches in question were probably built on top of an old temple. There are many instances of this, but most of the churches have since been renamed.

There are also many places called Ullensaker and Ulvang, which both mean Uller's fields. I could go on, but I'd really better stop now.

Thanks to [**G0ne**Bye*Bye*] - Fiona for this addition...
the following is taken from The Encyclopedia of Gods by Michael Jordan

ULL Gothic glory. Synonyms: Ullr
Origin: Nordic (Icelandic) and Germanic. May have originated as an early northern German sky god, but also connected with fertility and with the sea

Known period of worship: prehistoric times until Christianization circa 1100 AD

Centre(s) of cult: none known, but several place names in Norway and Sweden allude.

Literary sources: Icelandic codices; Prose Edda (Snorri); Historica Danica (Saxo); place names.

A sky god of Asgard, but with some links to the Vanir gods. The son of Sif and stepson of Thor, he is responsible for justice, and oaths were once sworn over the 'ring of Ull'. He may also have a role in the fertility of crops. Skaldic verse mentions the 'ship of Ull', presumed to be a reference to the use of Ull's shield as a boat. A scabbard excavated in Denmark in the third century AD bears a runic inscription 'servant of Ull'. According to Snorri, he wears a bow and snow shoes. Saxo describes him crossing the sea on a magic bone - a ski? He may have a sister, Ullin.

the following is taken from The Lost Beliefs of Northern Europe by Hilary Ellis Davidson:

'...but the significance of other halls, like Yewdale (Ydalar) where Ull is said to dwell...has been lost.'

a LOLZfun conversation with [BlackDragon]:

BD
Wow... Thats cool Moira!! Actually, I havent heard so much about that God.... I have read some books about norse gods, but its just Oden and Thor that seem to rule everything...

Hehehehe... I dont know, he maybe was hiding um... somewhere... :P

MH
I have been studing this for nearly 30 yrs!
most of what I believe has been added to a little teeney tiny peices found here and there...
I said it was nearly impossible to find whole myths about Ullr...

BD
I like mythology and such stuff, like old gods and so on, but its hard to find good stuff about them, and its really old too... but now I gotten very curious about Ullr and when Im curious.... I just have to find out more!!

MH
watch out he may just cum to you in a dream!
hahahahaha... he is a randy elf!

well he is a winter God ...
but he cant spend ALL his time skiing and hunting!

BD
LOL!! Yea, that is very true...
must be kinda cold out there in the snow too...

MH
He needs to be warmed up when he gets home!
and he is a skinney elf! not much fat on him!
must need alot of warming! how better to do it!??!

BD
Well, Gods seem to like people like you :)
*wonders if he is already married..*
MH
yah.... to Skadi... she is the winter Goddess....
but you know Gods.... mahahahahahahahaha

plus even if Ullr was faithful to Skaldi as his goddess wife...
he has duties! to his whorshippers to attend to!

its hard to find stuff on him which drives me crazy!
but he is everywhere as Sants Clause!
just WTF is with all that FAT!???!...
and a OLD God! its just wrong!
But they got the white hair right!

but Loki cant have a beard!
and definately not Ullr!!!
<img:http://www.elftown.com/img/photo/49339_1103825609.gif>

Things Ullr would never DO! or SAY!

1. Stand in front of a mirror & ask you.... "Do I look fat?"
2. Grow a beard!
3. Dye or cut his hair!
4. Go to a beach and tan. (as an albino he'd need 95 sunscreen)
5. Shop at Walmart for Christmas gifts.
6. "Im sorry we will have to continue this dream later its time for you to wake up..."
7.

Ullr is the origin of Santa Claus...
And he is a God... Stolen by Christianity!
But the whole gift giving thing is his...
so yes I believe he does...
but I dont have to explain it in Christian Victoria logic!

From: [BlackDragon] (Dreams Dreams Dreams...)

DOES SANTA CLAUS REALLY EXIST?
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I am pleased to present the annual scientific inquiry into Santa Claus.

1) No known species of reindeer can fly. BUT there are 300,000 species
of living organisms yet to be classified, and while most of these are
insects and germs, this does not COMPLETELY rule out flying reindeer
which only Santa has ever seen.

2) There are 2 billion children (persons under 18) in the world.
BUT since Santa doesn't (appear) to handle the Muslim, Hindu, Jewish
and Buddhist children, that reduces the workload to to 15% of the total
- 378 million according to Population Reference Bureau. At an average
(census) rate of 3.5 children per household, that's 91.8 million homes.
One presumes there's at least one good child in each.

3) Santa has 31 hours of Christmas to work with, thanks to the different
time zones and the rotation of the earth, assuming he travels east to west
(which seemes logical). This works out to 822.6 visits per second. This is
to say that for each Christian household with good children, Santa has
1/1000th of a second to park, hop out of the sleigh, jump down the chimney,
fill the stockings, distribute the remaining presents under the tree, eat
whatever snacks have been left, get back up the chimney, get back into the

sleigh and move on to the next house. Assuming that each of these 91.8
million stops are evenly distributed around the earth (which, of course,
we know to be false but for the purposes of our calculations we will accept),
we are now talking about .78 miles per household, a total trip of 75-1/2
million miles, not counting stops to do what most of us must do at least
once every 31 hours, plus feeding and etc.

This means that Santa's sleigh is moving at 650 miles per second,
3,000 times the speed of sound. For purposes of comparison, the fastest
man- made vehicle on earth, the Ulysses space probe, moves at a poky
27.4 miles per second - a conventional reindeer can run, tops, 15 miles
per hour.

4) The payload on the sleigh adds another interesting element. Assuming
that each child gets nothing more than a medium-sized lego set (2 pounds),
the sleigh is carrying 321,300 tons, not counting Santa, who is invariably
described as overweight. On land, conventional reindeer can pull no more

than 300 pounds. Even granting that "flying reindeer" (see point #1) could
pull TEN TIMES the normal anount, we cannot do the job with eight, or
even nine. We need 214,200 reindeer. This increases the payload - not even
counting the weight of the sleigh - to 353,430 tons. Again, for comparison
- this is four times the weight of the Queen Elizabeth.

5) 353,000 tons travelling at 650 miles per second creates enourmous air
resistance - this will heat the reindeer up in the same fashion as spacecrafts
re-entering the earth's atmosphere. The lead pair of reindeer will absorb
14.3 QUINTILLION joules of energy. Per second. Each. In short, they will
burst into flame almost instantaneously, exposing the reindeer behind them,
and create deafening sonic booms in their wake. The entire reindeer team will
be vaporized within 4.26 thousandths of a second. Santa, meanwhile, will be
subjected to centrifugal forces 17,500.06 times greater than gravity.
A 250-pound Santa (which seems ludicrously slim) would be pinned to the back
of his sleigh by 4,315,015 pounds of force.

In conclusion -
If Santa ever DID deliver presents on Christmas Eve, he's dead now.

**note two
Saint Nicholaus as Santa Claus
no it goes back older than that..... Saint Nicholaus was graphed onto the older myths...

Ullr was said to be God of the elfs/ otherworld...
respondable for the dead...
I have had a hard time finding a norse myth that proves this...

(but in celtic I did find supporting myths that the God of the dead is an albino...
and so are his hounds)

Also I have found myth evindence that Ullr is the ruler of Asgard during the winter months...
and Oden has been known to be responsible for the dead...
so it makes sense that Ullr is during his time of rule.

The orginal gift was that he took those who were meant to die during the winter
and gave to the families what they would need to survive...

From: [Lord Dog]
Just read your Ullr page. In particular, the santa clause list. You forgot to mention one thing. Every country, Except america and presumedly canadian provincial group as well, have their own unique "sinter Claus " legend and even different feast days. So one would think until the Roman empire and later the Roman Catholic Church came along and pastuerized them into one St. Nick , there were many . A cult of Ullr possibly or maybe a Clan of same minded gods, Could have even included Prometheus (after all he did bring fire to the mortals down south).
After all we are talking about the people who made Lugus in to Apollo Lugus and Dionysius into Fat old drunk Bacchus

Oh and just got this in email
from a Household Scadian brother of Confed in Texas
thought you'd like it
(Its a common Scadian filk... anyways ... Enjoy!
Night Before Christmas -Viking Style)

'Twas the night before Yule and all through the Hall
Not a creature was stirring, not warrior nor thrall.
And I in my armor, my greaves and my helm
Was drunker than anyone else in the Realm.

I staggered upstairs and fell into bed
While four quarts of mead were ablaze in my head.
Then up from below came the sounds of a brawl
So I grabbed up my axe and ran down to the Hall.

I missed the last step and crashed down in a heap
Thinking, "Why can't those low-lifes downstairs go to sleep!"
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But two brawny strangers, wielding mallet and spear.

I said to myself, "We'll soon have them beat!"
Then I noticed ten warriors laid out at their feet.
I gave out a yell and leapt into the fray...
I'll always regret my poor choice of that day.

For the one laid his hammer to the side of my nose
And up, up, up to the rafters I rose.
Then came a lone frightened voice from the floor,
"Those are no mortal warriors -- that's Odin and Thor!"

Then they looked at each other and they said, "Battle's done.
Now they know who we are, it no longer is fun."
Then Thor raised his hammer, and his elbow he bent,
And with a loud crash, through the ceiling they went.

I crawled through the Hall and flung open the door,
Not really sure that I'd seen them before.
The snow bathed in starlight, the moon like a glede,
I saw them ride off on an eight-legged steed.

And I heard them exclaim,
'ere they flew out of sight,
"TO HELL WITH CHRISTMAS,
WE JUST LOVE A GOOD FIGHT!"

2005-09-15 [moira hawthorne]: Yes ... Im sure my hubby 5. [geirrekr] isnt a Droooler either... tho he much admire him... since he named his World of Warcraft Night Elf after him

2005-11-21 [Lordterrex]: ok.. question.. are we for, or against santa?... *gets out my lil santa flag and waves it around*

2005-11-21 [moira hawthorne]: well santa is Ullr... I just prefer to think of him young gorgous slim without a beard.

2005-11-21 [Lordterrex]: o.. yes.. i see...*shifty eyes*... beards and a pot belly are pretty sexxy if you ask me.. -_-... im just working on the beard...

2005-11-21 [moira hawthorne]: he is an elf!... billy have a beard and potbelly.. but he isnt a god either..

2005-11-21 [Lordterrex]: billy?... who is billy?... o wait.. hubby right?.. heh... ok.. so im built with more than just a pot belly... and my beard isnt gonna be white for a long time... (i hope).. i just dont like the idea of a hotty doing all the good deed... >< they get credit for everything good as it is

2005-11-21 [moira hawthorne]: but you are a hero Terrex! not an elf god.. but a hunman hotty.. Bill doesnt look anything like Ullr and I love him...that was my point...about Bill... I just have a very particular vision for Ullr... Loki is a red head and not beard too.. Oden and Thor have beards tho..

2005-11-21 [Lordterrex]: lokis a red head?!?!... no wander those red heads are so freaking tricky... *shifty eyes*.. heh..i mean.. umm...
