Jól or modern Jul originates from norse jólablót, which was the celebration of the Nordic mid-winter set to January 12. The pre-Christian jól is though to be a celebration of the return of the sun and the fertility of the earth.

One of the core traditions of jól, and also modern day jul, is the brewing and drinking of beer – drikke jul (drinking jól). In the Norwegian viking law, Gulatingsloven originating from the mid 800s, every farm was mandated by the king to brew beer for Jól, and a heavy fine would have to be paid for those who didn't.

Another tradition was to burn candles all night, have food out on the table, and let the beds be empty the night between the evening of jól and the jól morning in order to let the dead use them. People slept on the floor that night next to the beds.
