Yule the one that I want.

Yule is a time of symbolism and power. It marks the return of the sun as the days will be getting longer. It is a time of hearth and home, friends and family and sharing in the spirit of giving. There is a chill in the air but the snow may not have fallen yet (or not in decent enough quantities). The altar can be covered in cool colours, light blues, whites and silvers. Some like to include reds and greens as this is the colour of the holly, an important Yule symbol. As it is the return of the sun, some solar symbolism on the altar is also acceptable, in the form of gold discs, gold candles etc. More natural symbols that can be placed upon the altar are evergreen boughs, sprigs of holly, pine cones and a Yule log.
