This was mentioned on the Asa-Parent list, that I was made owner of: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jul_i_Valhal there is a miniseries called Yule in Valhalla. The premise is so hillarious, these two kids unwittingly find a passage to Asgard and unchain Loki which will bring about Ragnarok, and they have until Yule to stop him! It’s like the Grinch who stole Christmas, Viking Style :laugh:
So, the kids go on this journey to stop him. There are two parts of this that are really funny, I almost busted:
“Hel says she will only let Balder go to Asgard to forgive Loki if they leave Emma behind as insurance that Balder will come back. They agree, and Balder forgives Loki in Asgard, meanwhile Emma stays behind playing gameswith Hel” seriously!! I mean I can totally picture Hel calmly keeping someone around as insurance, but I would love to see what they ‘play’…I was picturing, Scrabble with Hel
“Jonas and Sofie give the gods various gifts: Heimdall gets polish for Gjallarhorn, Sif gets a mirror, Idun gets hair spray, Freya gets Sofie’s charm bracelet, and Loki gets an electric razor. Loki asks why Sofie seems sad, and she explains that she still has to leave for Singapore.” Okay, I am not even going to try an analyize this…but I could not help giggling that Loki got an electric razor and Idun got hair spray! Seriously! Human’s pick some very strange gifts for gods!
Anyway, perhaps someone out there will subtitle it! I would love to see it!
