Yule is a festival of rebirth and the return of the sun, as after the longest night (21st of December) there is a return of light, promise, and hope. The Goddess gives birth to the Sun God. The days start to grow longer and all that has been hidden starts to emerge again. It is also the time of the eternal battle of the Oak and Holly King. The Holly King rules from the Midsummer to Yule, from here he must surrender his life to the Oak King who will rule until the Midsummer.
