Easy DIY Yule Crafts to Celebrate the Christmas Season witchy style!

The Yule or Winter Solstice is a Pagan festival that indicates the start of winter according to the ancient Celtic traditions. The first day of winter marks a time of change and transformation as we allow the waning Sun to continue his journey through darkness and into light again at Imbolc . It is also celebrated as Midwinter or Alban Arthuan in Arthurian tradition, which means Birthday of Arthur (celebrated on 20 Dec ).

Yule was originally a seasonal holiday celebrated by Germanic peoples as far back as 2 B.C., but has become more commonly known as an important holiday celebrated by Wiccans and Pagans. It is a time of honoring the Holly King, closing out the year with celebrations, rituals and gift-giving to friends and family.

Today we celebrate Yule as a special holiday for our coven's tradition. As part of our holiday celebrations, I thought I'd share this easy DIY craft that you can do witchy style! Join us in celebrating Yule this winter season with these fun crafts!
