Merry Yule and Blessed Winter Solstice!!! 

Blessed Summer Solstice to our friends in the Southern Hemisphere!!

I thought I'd share the lyrics to a couple of my favorite holiday songs in case some of you plan on doing a little carolling!

Tune: God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
words by Ellen Reed

God rest ye merry, paganfolk,
Let nothing you dismay.
Remember that the Sun returns
Upon this Solstice day.
The growing dark is ending now
And Spring is on its way.

Oh, tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy!
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy.

The Goddess rest ye merry, too,
And keep you safe from harm.
Remember that we live within
The circle of Her arms,
And may Her love give years to come
A very special charm.

Oh, tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy!
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy!


Ellen Reed

Silent night, Solstice Night
All is calm, all is bright
Nature slumbers in forest and glen
Till in Springtime She wakens again
Sleeping spirits grow strong!
Sleeping spirits grow strong!

Silent night, Solstice night
Silver moon shining bright
Snowfall blankets the slumbering Earth
Yule fires welcome the Sun's rebirth
Hark, the Light is reborn!
Hark, the Light is reborn!

Silent night, Solstice night
Quiet rest till the Light
Turning ever the rolling Wheel
Brings the winter to comfort and heal
Rest your spirit in peace!
Rest your spirit in peace!

And here's a beautiful song for this time of year. I love the message of family coming together, getting over differences, having an open mind and most of all, LOVE.

And let's not forget my FAVORITE Yule song!!

This one is getting stuck in your head. Just give in to it.

"Let us welcome back
the returning of the sun
with Hope and Joy"

Enjoy the season everyone! Don't eat all the candy canes in one night....

Bright Blessings,

Love and Light,
