Have a Cool Yule.


Yule.

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.

Rules:
  • 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 ; )

I've never celebrated Yuletide specifically, but I have bought yule logs back in the days when we had a fireplace. I like the idea of burning a bayberry candle, so I'm going to pick one up and hope for a better year in 2011!

I celebrate Yule. For me, it is going on right now. On December 21st, there will be a lot of happy, eating, candle light and our fire, and thinking of the rebirth of the sun. My fireplace is actually a too small of a wood burner, so I will use a special log that I bring out every year and light a candle to represent the yule log burning.

I love this post :) and Happy Holidays to you!
