WINTER SOLSTICE - YULE
Yule has just gone by so I thought I would highlight some of the gorgeous works here,
Winter Solstice is called "Mean Geimredh", mid-winter, in Irish, "Alban Arthan", the point of roughness, in Wales, "Modranicht", mother night, to the Anglo-Saxon's, "Deuorius Riuri", great divine winter feast, in the Coligny Calendar and "Yule." The word "Yule," according to Bede and various other authorities of the olden time is derived from an archaic Norse word "Jol," meaning "a wheel."
The Winter Solstice represents the rebirth of the sun, which is a particularly important turning point. The night of Solstice is the longest night of the year. Darkness triumphs; and yet, gives way and changes into light. (Taken from "The Wheel of the Year at Muin Mound Grove, ADF" by Rev. Skip Ellison.)

:thumb517638771: WELCOME TRAVELLERS :thumb517638986: Do you like stories? As a matter of fact I like them a lot, especially when I can interpret them any way I like. That's why today we're going on a mystery tour showing hidden tales which could be found between our members' submissions. Onwards to the adventure! :thumb523352464: by ~esforsei (https://www.deviantart.com/esforsei) Hades and Persephone theme by esforsei (https://www.deviantart.com/esforsei) I think everyone is familiar with Hades and Persephone's love story: dark underground world where a young girl is imprisoned by the death god. In esforsei (https://www.deviantart.com/esforsei)'s work this world isn't dark at all - it's filled with life and the amount of detail is
