With Solstice/Yule less than a week away thought I would start a thread wishing all those that celebrate this day much love, compassion and peace.

I am so thankful for the community of pagan women that I have around me now. It's a beautiful thing to be surrounded by women that honor and rejoice each other as we each find our own way. I hope we can be there for each other as we face oppression, bigotry and hate but also as we share love, acceptance and understanding.

Thanks you guys!

Gud Jul everyone.

earthmomma--there are a couple other threads for Yule celebrations/ rituals/food ideas, etc.

We got our big tree up last night and got the lights on. Today, we take a break from Yule prep to celebrate my Yule baby's birthday (believe it or not, she asked for a nativity set, and she is getting one. I am calling the infant Baby Mithra in my mind). Dd is 17! sushi tonight-- LOTR on the weekend, woohoo! Sorry for the OT, but it's all a part of the reason for the season here.

Thanks a million to all you pagans and searchers, cosmopolitans and friends of the god/dess. I've gotten so much good support here.

Blessings everyone.....
I have been living in the northern hemisphere for a few years only, but I'm learning to love this season for what it biologically represents, the renewal of nature and the rebirth of the sun. You take all that for granted when you live in a place where the sun "never leaves"
