Blessed Yule everyone, I hope you are all having as wonderful of a day as I am. As you read this my house his filled with family, friends and the smells that come along with cooking food. In my family Yule has completely replaced Christmas, we do gather family and friends, we celebrate the return of the Sun God, we feast, and we share in our own wealth and abundance. It is without a doubt one of my favorite times of the year.
I’m always fascinated by the different ways people spend their Yule. Some people treat it like another day celebrating only the exact moment of the Solstice. Others celebrate with ruckus party, while to some it is a solemn occasion. The differences cover the gambit from one end of the spectrum all the way to the other.
How do you celebrate Yule? Is it a solemn private ritual, a grand feast or somewhere in between?
As I wrote this I just realized that this question will be posted to the internet and that the people who read it are all around the world. So there is the very real possibility that you won’t be celebrating Yule at all. So Blessed Mid-Summer, how are you celebrating your holiday? Oh and are you sick of people forgetting that you do things at different times of the year?
