YULE

Image result for Yule image

Yule or Yuletide ("Yule time") is a festival observed by the historical Germanic peoples, later undergoing Christianised reformulation resulting in the now better-known Christmastide. Scholars have connected the celebration to the Wild Hunt, the god Odin and the pagan Anglo-Saxon Mōdraniht.

Terms with an etymological equivalent to Yule are used in the Nordic countries for Christmas with its religious rites, but also for the holidays of this season. Today Yule is also used to a lesser extent in the English-speaking world as a synonym for Christmas. Present day Christmas customs such as the Yule log, Yule goat, Yule boar, Yule singing, outright Yulery, these and others stem from pagan Yule. Today the event is celebrated in Heathenry and some other forms of Modern Paganism. If you ingest too much over Christmastide then Yule more than likely be sorry..

Yule is a synonym for Autumn, then?

Or...a forest with a fence dividing it?

My head hurts...
Chris: Actually this was taken a couple of weeks ago whilst on a walk with Lisl. Unfortunately we have so little snow hereabouts - unlike blazing Arizona - that I have no images of that appropriate sort to use..
Very lovely, Chris!

Merry Christmas!
Chris: You are welcome Ellie, I am jealous of your snow..

Plenty of Yule logs here. I hope yule enjoy the day and get to enjoy the a great outdoors. I think I'm housebound for the day.
Chris: This is very unusual for you. You might go MAD but how would anyone else in the household actually be able to detect this is somewhat of a conundrum..

I wish you a wonderful walk through this wood, but I see a wired fence - then explore the deserted streets of Bath - Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, esp. Ratty!
Chris: Much obliged to you Philine. After lunch today Jackie & I are going out into the countryside for a walk
Ho Ho Ho

and all that
Chris: Exactly..
