Yule or Christmas.
My family celebrate both...Yule is really my Sabbat, as my family go for Christmas in a latent Christian fashion.

It's about Goodwill to them more than a religious festival.

So, my gang start to sink into the depths of the season on 21st. 
I'll have a quiet ritual, and will also make a Yule Log (again). So far each one has been traditionally disposed of, burnt or left or the creatures in my garden to burrow into. I think I'll stick with the burrowing again. I'm eclectic after all.
What will you do?
Any photos or stories?
Anything related to the season is fine in this discussion.

The turning of the wheel (Seasons), from darkness to light. The Sun returns and is reborn :-)
This Sabbat celebrates surviving the harsh winter and it's deep night, soon the light will return and push the cold and darkness away, revealing life and warmth once again!

Here is some history of the roots, and pantheons linked to the Pagan Winter Solstice.

Absolutely gorgeous.

I don't have an Oak tree nearby, so I have to make do with any other wood from our local woodlands, or anything left locally. I can walk down into our woods, but on my own, around here it wouldn't be a good idea any more lol. Not sure who'd get the worst fright, me a local witch, or a local hoodlum.

Bets are on. LMAO!

Anyway, when I do actaully light a Yule Log its on our bbq, although I'm hoping to get a small wood burner for the patio in the next few days..we'll see. THAT would be perfect. 

I do decorate a log with evergreens and personal symbols such as my favourite fae, and pine cones. I have 2/3 candles on it too and it pretty much stands as a Yuletide altar for me over the season. That's a personal thing though. Others may not approve but I'm eclectic so..ha!

My kids like christmas, it's what they grew up with.  I usually do a Yule ceremony, light some candles, put some pine boughs on my altar....Kasey seems to be getting into the pagan aspect more this year.

Here is an old chriatmas tree picture, back when we had a fake tree.  We've been doing real ones the last few years.

Every year, I like to read Alex Haley's, 'A different Kind Of Christmas.'  It was one of my moms books that I inherited
