One of the most common questions we get asked is how to get through “Christmas” when you are not a Christian. Well just take a look at what are considered the general trappings of “Christmas” and you will find that it all has origins in the pre-Christian past of our folk. The real question should be “How do Christians get through such an overtly Odinic/heathen/pagan festival”.
So relax and enjoy time with your family and friends! Give gifts, decorate evergreens, feast and be merry, feel warmth in your heart for the love of your kin and the return of the Sun. Even if you are surrounded by Christians you can still rejoice in the season because it is ours! Yule is the reason for the season!
We hope that some of the great articles on the Acorn Hollow site help to make a special Yule for your families and please do feel free to share any practices that you incorporate at this time of year.
Wassail and a Merry Yule!
