As Yule comes, the snow may not have yet fallen, but there is a strong chill in the air. The colours for your altar, are cool blues, whites, reds and greens. Candles of wintry colours will compliment your altar and sparkles is never a bad thing. Yule is the time of the return of the sun, and so solar representations are always welcome on the altar. This could be golden disc, yellow candles, just anything that is bright and shiny. Evergreen boughs can be place on the altar as well as holly, and the yule log. Antlers or reindeer could be there as the symbols of fertility. But anything seasonal can be place on your altar, fruit and nuts, mistletoe, candy cane and bells. And many of the natural aspects can be incorporated into some crafty items for the altar, such as incense, wreaths, herb sachet and pentacle.
