Yule is celebrated at the Winter Solstice, so it can vary slightly from year to year. This Sabbat celebrates the Winter Solstice and the birth of the God from the womb of the Goddess.
This day (Yule) is the day with the least amount of sunlight for the year. Many trees have lost their leaves, very few foods are growing, and the cold is setting in. From this day forth, the days will get longer and the nights shorter, hence, the Sun God is born on Yule and he will grow in strength to bring us our “growing season”. The fact that the Goddess gives birth to the God emphasizes the duality of power … it is from the fertility of the Goddess that brings us the God and his power to grow the foods.
Most rituals on this day celebrate the coming of the God, and the fertility of the higher power. We tend to feast on foods that represent, and contain, the energy of the sun.
