I'm curious about land and house wights.

What is your understanding of them?

How large a role do they play in your practices/beliefs?

Have you had direct experience with them, or do you accept them without personal experience?

In what ways do you connect with them, honor them, etc?

Please answer any or all of these questions, as you like, or perhaps even a question that I didn't know to ask.  Wink

1.  I understand that the Vaettir are broken into families that include the Alfar, Dvergar, and Jotnar.  There are many more, but it is my basic understanding that each family is closely associated with different aspects of nature and the home.

2.  Aside from an occasional gifting very, very little.  I let my wife handle this since she feels a closer bond.

3.  See above.

4.  Depends on the circumstance, but generally it is a small offering fitting with the wight.  A land-wight, for example, would be left selected fruits and vegetables.

Edit - Please do note that I consider all of this to be UPG
