Well today is Yule, the shortest day of the year.
our modern Christmas has borrowed many ideas from the old Yule celebrations.Christmas trees, mistletoe, holly, the colors red& green, Yule Elf (santa}, and Yule log all trace their roots to Yule.Basicaly its wecoming back the sun. The sun is reborn.
We celebrate 12 days of yule, starting today, Dec 21, and ending New years day Jan 1.
last year the president sent out a Yule greeting, wonder if he will this year.
ok so the pres didnt send a Yule greeting last year, just thought that it was funny.
One more cup of coffee, and Im going to make my own yule log. -HS
