  • Yule has a long history based in Pre-Christian Germanic Beliefs and traditions. The majority of those who celebrate it today do so as a Winter Solstice Celebration. For those who practice more "Germanic Inspired" Paths this can be up to a 12 day celebration, for others in the Pagan community it's usually between 1 and 3 day/night celebration. It's a time to celebrate the longest night of the year and the rebirth of the Sun God following.
