The Winter Solstice – Yule

The shortest day and the longest night, it is from this day onwards that we start to get a little bit more sunlight each day.  The Oak King and the Holly King fight once more with the Oak King winning this time to reign over the waxing period of the year.   A time for family, friends, get togethers, feasting and celebrating.

We probably all over eat at this time of the year, I like to think of it as fuel to help keep my body warm…The scents and tastes at Yule are amazing with cinnamon and cloves being my favourites, just the smell of mince pies baking in the oven sums up this season for me.
