    Yule information

    Yule - 21st December

    This is the winter solstice and has the shortest day and the longest night. It is the celebration of the rebirth of the sun. Witches will bring evergreen decorations into the home to remind them of the new growing season.

    Holly with berries is the traditional, the berries representing the resting Mother and life returning to our lands, and the green of the holly representing the Holly king, who rules until this time.

    Mistletoe is another favourite as it is believed to have magical powers because it grows between the earth and sky and isn’t rooted to the ground.
    At Yule, the Oak king, Lord of summer is born again, and the Oak and Holly kings who are brothers, share the rule of the year, the Oak king reigns from midwinter to midsummer, the time of increasing light and the Holly king, reigning from midsummer to midwinter, the period of increasing darkness. (Light and dark are not describing good and bad). At the solstice, light and dark are said to battle to decide who will have control over the coming months.
