I have recieved several e-mails concerning the Yule.
It is okay IMO for Wiccans to celebrate Christmas.

We are celebrating the Solsitice and saying good bye to the past year and welcoming the new. Look up "Yuletide" in any search engine and you will learn alot!!
Happy Yule and Blessed Be!!!

Blessing to all.
