Merry Meet All,
Today is December 1st. Winter Solstice is coming up on December 21st. The Snow moon of November just passed. The moon is waning and is in Cancer. The Celtic Tree Month Between starts on Dec. 23rd. Today the sun is shining. I saw frost on the cars parked in the driveway.
The upcoming posts will help prepare you for a magical, memorable Yule! Winter Solstice, is magical and serene, different from Samhain’s chaotic energy. I saw a squirrel eating seeds, perched on a tree the other day. They are storing food for the cold winter ahead. We can prepare too. The upcoming posts will cover Yule lore, correspondences of Yule, how to make Yule stockings, Yule baking, incenses, candles and herbs for Yule, and traditions and rituals for Yule.
The Hobbit will be in theaters soon. Be sure to see it. You can view the trailer on my blog. Currently I am working on creating a fairy tale book for my niece as a Christmas present for her this year. I plan to make it very Celtic. I hope she likes her gift.
So enjoy candy canes and cider and stay tuned for posts on how to celebrate Yule this year!!
