Yule Blessings!

Published December 21, 2014 by Lunapo

Yule, the Winter Solstice. Meteorlogically, winter started on December 1st. Solarly, it began on Mabon, at the Autumn Equinox. By the time we are at Yule, we have been in the Meteorlogical winter for 20 days and the Solar winter for about three months. Yet seasonally, Yule is the official start of winter. While the Sun has returned and the days will begin to grow longer, the weather will also grow colder. The Oak King has finally fallen away and his twin brother, the Holly King, rises up and rules his half of the year when the only greenery around are the evergreen plants which, like him, do not ever go dormant and are only fully recognized at a time when all other plant life is at rest.

May Yule Blessings reach out to you and yours at this season and every day.
