Blessed Solstice and Happy Yule!
While many of my friends and family are prepping for and celebrating Christmas this time of year, I celebrate a little differently. Celebrating the turning of the wheel of the year, I am getting ready for the winter Solstice, which this year will fall on Dec 21st. Often called Yule, this holiday is very similar to Christmas in that we are celebrating the rebirth of the god to the goddess. While there are many variations of Yule or solstices celebrations, I wanted to just wish everyone a blessed Yule and a happy holiday season, however you celebrate this time of year.
I have provided a few great links to give you more info about Yule in case you are interested.
Just like all the holidays this time of years, the best part is getting to spend time with family and friends. Decorating the tree, gorging on great food, and baking all the yummiest treats you can. Chocolate, nuts, and delicious cookies abound in my home as in so many others. In the spirit of giving I am sharing a favorite Yule time snack that my mom has always made for me. And I can guarantee you’ll love it too.
