The Origins and Magic of Yuletide/Winter Solstice Traditions
Please join Amy Taylor, owner of TAoTaT's Mystic Tearoom for a celebration of the changing of the Seasons.
Yule or Yuletide («Yule time») is a festival observed by the historical Germanic peoples. Scholars have connected the celebration to the Wild Hunt, the god Odin, and the pagan Anglo-Saxon Mōdraniht. It later underwent Christianised reformulation resulting in the term Christmastide.
This year Yule is coming up on Thursday December 21st and will continue until Monday January 1st, 2018. It is considered, by those who follow the Pagan/Witches Wheel of the Year as the first spoke in the wheel. It is a time for family, friends, warmth and at times, quiet reflection…
Why is Yule longer than a day? What are the traditions associated with it? What is the story of the Oak and Holly Kings? Where did the Yule Log (and not always a cake) come from and why were its ashes important? What is the deeper meaning of this holiday and why should we embrace the older ways associated with it?
Come and learn the history, the magick, and the mystery of this special time of year.
Space is limited to 12 people so pre-registering for this evening will be required. You can do so by emailing [email protected]
