Merry Solstice from the Pagan Housewife!

We have reached the darkest day of the year, when night is longer than day, and we rarely see sunshine. This is the season of midwinter, the Yule Solstice, the shortest day. For pagans, it is a time to honour the Holly King and give thanks for a safe and healthy year. We reflect on the adventures and challenges we have faced, we appreciate what they have taught us, and we accept the lessons with gratitude.


This is a time to celebrate with family and friends, lighting fires to keep our spirits up, singing winter songs and playing cheerful music. This is Christmas! It is no secret that Yule and Christmas Day fall at such close proximity in the Christian calendar. I am fortunate to be able to celebrate both festivals for much the same reasons, although I appreciate the religious connotations of the second. Merry Solstice, my friends!
