Here we have the winter Esbat. I am not a lover of winter at all. I don't mind a bit of cold at all but it is the short, dark, dull days that I don't like. I don't like going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark. I am an Autumn girl I'm afraid!

Yule celebrated the re-birth of the sun. It is the longest night of the year and afterwards, the days start to grow longer and the dark starts to recede. The best time to do a ritual is at dawn so that you can watch the birth of the newborn sun.

Other names for Yule include Winter Solstice, Midwinter, Yultide, Festival of Sol

Yuletime Eve (Poem)
