The longest night of the year. A time to gather around the fire and burn a Yule log to keep the night at bay. A time for introspection and planning for the future. A time to burn bayberry candles to insure a prosperous year.
It is the time, according to stories, when the Summer King (The Oak King) is born or kills the Winter King (The Holly King) and accordingly the days grow longer.
In honor of Yule, I'm giving away a $10.00 gift card to Amazon.com. Please see my contest policy on my Policies page. The card will be e-mailed directly to the winner so please make sure to put your e-mail address in.
- Write a comment letting me know if you've ever celebrated Yule and how. If you haven't, how would you celebrate it? You can Google "Yule" to find more background on the holiday and ways to observe it. (Don't forget your e-mail address! No address-no entry.)
- One (1) winner will be chosen at random.
- This contest ends at December 21, at midnight. ~Although technically the sun enters Capricorn at 6:38 pm ; )
