Yule / Winter Solstice

This is a Pagan celebration. Yule marks the Winter Solstice - the shortest day of the year - when Pagans celebrate the rebirth of the sun.

The lives of the ancient Celtic people were strongly influenced by the seasons and the Earth's position with regard to the sun. The sun was vital for the cycle of life and was worshipped as a god. After the Winter Solstice, days start to lengthen and Pagans would celebrate the return of new life
