Yule is the celebration of the winter solstice and is one of the oldest winter celebrations in the world. Yule marks the point at which the Sun begins to return to us (when the days begin to lengthen again). But the winter solstice is the darkest day of the year, so Yule is both a time of reflection and celebration.
Lighting a Yule log and feasting are traditional ways to celebrate. Yule log burning is a symbolic ritual to release the past and banish old or negative energy that you don’t wish to follow you into the new year. It’s also the way to welcome back the Sun and celebrate the fact that the days are going to get lighter and longer from now on.
Any excuse to soak with my Yule bath bomb or feast sounds good to me! Redhead Apothecary wants to wish you a happy and healthy Yuletide Season.
Thank you for all the love and support this year.
