We Had A Cool Yule!

Yule\

It’s that time again…the wheel turns once more and today we celebrate the Winter Solstice (First day of Winter) aka Yule! Typically, I prepare in advance for a ritual, but I’ve been so busy making their Yule gifts, that I neglected to do so. I feel like such a crappy Wiccan…but my family always come first, so what can I say? We did make time to go for a walk and enjoy a very warm first “Winter” day. We discussed the day’s importance and what is happening with the seasonal changes (and what is happening south of the equator). All in all, it was a perfectly lovely Solstice. As the end of the day drew near, it was time for me to present our girls with my hard work!

Well, the girls loved their gifts and we all had a fun night of playing with them before bed! I love these kinds of gifts for them, because not only do they come from the heart, but they are great for sparking imaginative play! No batteries required!
