Blessed Yule!!

The house is dark and silent. Outside the snow lies deep, cold, icicles dripping from the eaves. A match flickers and touches the Log. A tiny flame begins, gathering strength as it finds the fuel...the boughs of evergreen, bits of berries and holly, twigs. And then there is a sudden burst of light. Fire! Light!! A cheer rises as the flames begin their crackling dance. Light the candles!! Play the beautiful music..the songs that stir up joy.

And so the Solstice is upon us. It can not get any darker now. There will be more light...just barely noticeable at first. But it will grow stronger every day.

The Blessings of light and warmth are upon us. Finally. Celebrate and Plan. Prepare for the Turning of the Wheel and what will come. Blessed Yule is here!!

Celebrate the return of Light
