Blessed Yule.  I simply wanted to take this time to let you all know that I am extremely blessed to have found you all.  May your lives be filled with the bounty of the coming year.  
 
Tiannia and Family

 
Yule Lore... (Dec 21st or 22nd)
Yule, (pronounced EWE-elle) is when the dark half of the year relinquishes to the light half. Starting the next morning at sunrise, the sun climbs just a little higher and stays a little longer in the sky each day. Known as Solstice Night, or the longest night of the year, much celebration was to be had as the ancestors awaited the rebirth of the Oak King, the Sun King, the Giver of Life that warmed the frozen Earth and made her to bear forth from seeds protected through the fall and winter in her womb. Bonfires were lit in the fields, and crops and trees were "wassailed" with toasts of spiced cider.  
 
Children were escorted from house to house with gifts of clove spiked apples and oranges which were laid in baskets of evergreen boughs and wheat stalks dusted with flour. The apples and oranges represented the sun, the boughs were symbolic of immortality, the wheat stalks portrayed the harvest, and the flour was accomplishment of triumph, light, and life. Holly, mistletoe, and ivy not only decorated the outside, but also the inside of homes. It was to extend invitation to Nature Sprites to come and join the celebration. A sprig of Holly was kept near the door all year long as a constant invitation for good fortune to pay visit to the residents.

Hope this is appropriate Tiannia, since Happy Christmas is an irrelevant good wish to you, I have tried to find a more suitable one.

That was wonderful Wendy. Thank you.  
 
While I do not celebrate the religious holiday of Christmas, I do understand it and honor and accept the honest blssing that "Merry Christmas" mean.  Truly, it is the intent and not the words that matter.  
 
Blessed Holidays, no matter what it is that you celebrate. Be it Yule, Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa or whatever.

Happy Yule to all.  I personally find more balance and meaning at the equinoxes, but maybe that is because I am episodic and the summer solstice has been a gateway for the beast to enter my life.    
 
Side note to Tiannia - I went camping under the Snaefell glacier with the Grand Godi of Iceland and a merry band of Asartru once - didn't convert, but had a good time.  If you ever come across the novel "Christianity at Glacier" by Nobel prize winner Halldor Laxness, you might want to give it a read - it deals with the interplay of Christianity and Asartru in Icelandic thought.
