  • This is some of the traditional Yule, here.  It begins with the new moon nearest the solstice with Mother Night and lasts until 12th Night.

  • Yule is a title applied to several different winter holidays or festive periods, sometimes Christmas but more often (in modern times) to the Winter Solstice as celebrated by Wiccans & other Pagans. It has a more specific set of traditions associated with it, stemming from Northern Europe, I assume that is what the link NotPanicking posted will explain.
