Yuletide Blessings!

I wish you all a happy and blessed Yule.

Although the shortest day of the year, Yule or Midwinter marks the point of change, when the Oak King wins his fight with the Holly King yet again and our days become longer. Yeah!

It’s funny, the excitement I feel at Yule is the polar opposite to the sadness i feel at Midsummer. Knowing that the days are growing shorter, we still haven’t had a sniff of summer and the veggie garden harvest feels a lifetime away always gets me down for a while.

So, to the celebrations… tonight we have friends coming over to help us scoff the Ham A La Delia which Jon cooked last night (WOW, ham in coke is the new black, trust me!) and we’ll have lots of candles lit and a yule log to stuff full of wishes too.

How are you going to celebrate?
