Happy Winter Solstice 2012 – The First Day of Yule!

Happy Winter Solstice 2012 from Wintermas!   It’s the shortest day of the year, a time to celebrate the Sun, the Earth, Light and Warmth.

Not coincidently, it’s also the first day of the ancient traditional 12-day celebration of the “Yuletide” from Northern European culture, at time to celebrate home and hearth, family and friends.

Of course, Yule was later co-opted by Christians as their Holiday.  But no matter!  We can still celebrate the real Reason for the Season.

Happy Winter Solstice & Yule from your friends at Wintermas, a webiste promoting the true meaning of the Winter Holidays!
