Yule is nigh!

When you look into most of the Christmas traditions they come from a time when nature was worshipped and way before any Jewish god came along. The colours, red, green and gold, mistletoe, feasting, presents, trees/greenery brought inside, giving thanks and all done over the Winter Solstice. So on the 21st December celebrate the fact days will be longer and Yule is nigh.
