I usually work on Christmas and such and I seem to always miss Solstice because I forget what day it is since nobody else (I know) celebrates it… then I realized, I have a YouTube channel and I can shove my Yule down everyone’s throats. Pagan Power! I want to know if anyone else celebrates Yule instead of Christmas. First, I would imagine most of you celebrate Yule but call it Christmas. You can put the Christ back into Christmas, but let’s take Christ out of Yule. This is Christmas:
This is Yule:
The tree is something different still. It probably dates back to Viking or Saxton tree worshipers. If you have a better story let me know.
Anyway, I’m being an ass, you can celebrate whateverthefuck you want to celebrate and you can even make it up. Nobody is going to stop you from creating your own holiday where you fire overcooked apples out of a slingshot to celebrate the fact that you can. However, I get more into things if I know, understand, and enjoy the origins.
So… What should we do? A stream with a drink and an ugly sweater? A special episode? A Yule video discussing what it is? Any ideas? Anyone else do Yule instead of Christmas?
