Yule

I have been thinking for a while what to do for Yule this year as I am starting to teach my children about the wheel of the year. Well a very good friend and fellow witch gave me an email about making your own Yule logs....from toilet rolls..of all things...so the kids and I will be giving this a go over the next week....I will post the photo's and how to make these Yule logs as soon as we finish them!!!

Should be lots of fun.....

Here is a bit about Yule for those that don't know much about it...

Yule – Winter Solstice
June 21st (southern Hempishere)

Yule represents the rebirth of the God within the sacred fire of the mother Goddess. We welcome the return of the God. It’s time to reflect on the hidden energies lying dormant in winter, not only in our Earth but within ourselves as well.

Colours: - White, sliver, red, green and gold
Fruit: - berries, apples, oranges and lemons
Trees: - Holly, oak and pine

Burn a Yule log to celebrate the coming of the warmer months and that life comes from death.
Gift giving in a coven or group – have people write down something positive about each person in the group and then pass this paper around the group for all to add their thoughts.

I am also putting all our names into a hat and the idea is that you have to do two nice things for that person before the night of Yule....and it has to be without them asking you.....not sure how my 15 month old will go with this but you have to start somewhere...
