Thread Name: pagan yule
Subject: RE: pagan yule
From the "Better late than never" file...

Adapted from the Need Fire chant in the Wicker Man...

Light the Solstice Fire, watch the Yule log burn. Fire feed the fire seed at the sun's return.

And a chant by Kay Gardner, often used by Wiccans...

Celebrate the birth of the sun. Light the way, oh Lucina. Dance around the altarside. Blessed be the Great Mother.

And then there's...

Light is returning, even though this is the darkest hour. No one can hold back the dawn.

And Deck the Halls is perfect as it stands.

Hope you had a merry Yule, and have a Happy New Year.
