Winter Solstice, the longest night and shortest day of the year is also called Yule. Yule may mean ‘Yoke of the Year’, derived from the Anglo-Saxon Geola, though some suggest a derivation from the Norse Jul, meaning ‘wheel’. Yule promises the gradual return of the sun after prolonged darkness.
Winter Solstice arrives on December 21, 2012.
Many Winter Solstice and Yule customs are identified with Christmas today. If you decorate your home with a Yule tree, holly, candles, or mistletoe you are following some of these old traditions. Yule is a period of enlightenment and renewal of spirit. It’s a time for introspection, and planning for the future.
Merry Times to All.
Prosperity, Love and Compassion Today and Every Day.
Keep Peace In Your Heart
