Merry Yule, Everyone!
…or Solstice, or Saturnalia, or Midwinter, or whatever you want to call it.
How Pagans Celebrate Yule:
1. Sex. Lots of.
2. Food. Lots of.
3. Alcohol. Lots of.
Well…*cough cough*…there may be some meaningful rituals & bonfires in there too, if you’re lucky enough to be associated with a group, but hey, those are all the ORIGINAL methods of Solstice Celebration that I know of.
and NO, there’s no naked bonfire dancing. In Winter?? In OHIO?? you people are nuts.
…okay, maybe around a candle in my heated living room…
(edit: Oh, yeah, and we also watch “The Year Without a Santa Claus”, because the whole Mr. Snowmeister/Mr.Heatmeister feud/rivalry is a PERFECT modernization of the ancient Holly King/Oak King myth. The Gods arise in strange ways, my friends.)
