As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fagnaðar-öl (fagnaðar-ǫl)
- n. a joyful banquet, merry feast, Al. 150, Hkr. ii. 31.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fagnaðar-öl may be more accurately written as fagnaðar-ǫl.
