Have a Joyous Yule!


It's the Winter Solstice today. In the Northern Hemisphere, this is the time that the wheel of the year turns and we move toward the light. In honor of that, I often do a Yule log. I tie my wishes for the coming year to the log before I light it to offer them up to the universe. I pull some Tarot cards tonight and contemplate which chapters of my life should be closed and which should be opened.

Do you have a Yule tradition that you enjoy? Any recipes, like mulled cider or favorite wreaths? For me, Yule has usually been a fairly solitary holiday, but I'm looking forward to expanding my traditions. I'm thinking orange pomanders? I've never made those, but oranges always remind me of the sun.

  1. Growing up my kids always had a huge Christmas but now that I live with my sons, they don't celebrate at all.
    In a few months I will be with my daughter and we most definitely will have a yule log. I love how you did yours. Please write more of your blog. bethreed78753@gmail.com
