YULE

Falling on or around December 21st, Yule takes place on the winter solstice. It is the shortest day and longest night of the year, plunging the world into darkness. However, it is a time of joy as it is the starting point for light to enter the world again.

In some beliefs, Yule is the time of year when the sun god is reborn to return the light to us. It also marks the exchange of power from the Holly King to the Oak King, a representation of the cyclical nature of the seasons that has no end.

During this cold time of the year, action gives way to reflection. Yule is a time of thought. It should be spent reminiscing on the last year and telling tales of all the things that have happened. Lost family members are honored at this time of year and given a place to join in the festivities, as they are always with us.

One of the most important aspects of Yule is the Yule log, which is burnt to represent the light that can be found in the darkness. The log is traditionally burnt throughout the night to remind us that we can persevere through anything, no matter how dark. A piece of the Yule log is often saved to start the next year’s fire to represent the cycle of all things in nature.
