Alternatives to Valhalla
My apologies for referring to Tumblr but it was better than Facebook as a linkable source. I think it is worth at least considering and reviewing. For me, Freya and Heimdall are better choices and I would not want to be in Valhalla. Plus, while I trained for war, I never saw it and had the rather modern view of only wanting to go if ordered.
[To be clear, I realize there are several folks posting about Odin and Babysitting. These are effectively fiction from a person or persons and I am not speaking for individual narratives. We know from Egil’s Saga when his daughter mentioned going to Freya that our ancestor’s afterlife was more complex than 2-3 choices. I am not drawn to Odin and was not really focused on that part of the story. I still think the larger question is important to consider.]
