This is the feast of Mother Night in the Norse traditions. It’s the Odinist celebration of midwinter. Dreams occurring tonight are believed to foretell events of the coming year.
In the Northern Hemisphere, it is the Winter Solstice. This holiday is called Yule in the Wiccan tradition, and the word is thought to come from Iul, the Norse for “wheel” (which is that tradition’s name for this day). It’s called Alban Arthuan in the Druidic traditions. It is one of the eight great celebrations of the Pagan year.
In the Southern Hemisphere, it is the Summer Solstice. This holiday is called Litha in the Wiccan Tradition. It’s a time to celebrate Mother Earth and all nature in its’ glory. The power of nature is at its’ highest point and full of fertility. It is a great time for health, love, and purification. Fill your darkness with light. It is a time of abundance. Celebrate it!
