Midwinter celebrations in Viking Age Scandinavia were (and still are) known as Jul. A common practice, already appearing in Hrafnsmál in the year 900, is "drinking Jul". That points at the importance of gathering around the ceremonial toasts during the festivities. Odin, also known as Jölföðr (Yule Father) was an important figure during this period. Midwinter is often connected to Odin and his wild hunt across the sky.
