The Ásatrú holidays are generally described by the Old Norse word hátíðir (lit. high tides). A similar designation for holidays can be found in the Old High German term diu hôha gezît meaning exactly the same like hátíðir - lit. "the high tide". Even today you can find the phrase in recent German Hochzeit for a wedding.
