Yule Magic Blog Party

Welcome Blog Party People!  Many blessings to you and yours through this season and many thanks to Sally of The Village Witch for hosting.

My favorite part of Yule is what we, as modern pagans, rarely get to do... just sit and enjoy the silence of the season.  Yule is the quiet time of the growing earth and, for me, a time to sit in silence and breath before I have to come to life again, just as the earth does.

So my gift to you all is permission to STOP, go outside, look around you and just breath in the stillness.

Blessed Yule and all Hail the re-birth of the Sun.
