I've celebrated Yule in many different ways over the years, even forgotten all about it once in a while. To me, Christmas is all about being with family, the music, the food, the lights, the decorations. We've stopped spending much money on gifts because that's not important to us and besides, we have everything we need already.
But, Yule, is my quiet time. Some years, I've had Yule fires outside and a ritual of some sort, other times simply a burning candle. Some years, a special meal, other times fast food.
My favorite thing is to simply step outside (weather permitting) bid the autumn goodbye and welcome winter. I thank Mother Earth for the glorious autumn and hope she sleeps well. She deserves a long, quiet rest.
