    I have recieved several e-mails concerning the Yule.

    It is okay IMO for Wiccans to celebrate Christmas.

    Yuletide is the reason for the season the winter solstice  (which this year falls on 21 December at 7:22 pm EST),. Did you know that the Christmas was actually a pagan holiday.

    Celebrate the Yule season! It was pagans who first put up a "yule" tree and decorated it and gave presents to our loved ones.

    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!!! smile

      Thank you for posting this - it is so important to let people know that Yule was originally a pagan holiday. People seem to forget their roots, or at least, do not bother to do any research into the past. So this is good.

      And you RB...and to all the same...Whatever you believe.

      The sun sleeps longest at this time and rises bright above the line where earth and heavans gate combine to draw the heart and calm the mind. Behold the light that can never die
      Reborn anew in the Solstice Sky!

      Blessing to all. smile
