  • Story: 

    The god Ingvi Freyr rides over the earth on the back of his shining boar, bringing light and love back into the World.  Yule or 'Jul' signifies the beginning and end of all things; the darkest time (shortest hour of daylight) during the year and the brightest of hope reentering the world. 

    During this festival, the Wild Hunt is at its greatest fervor, and the dead are said to roam the Earth.  The God Wotan (Odin) is the leader of this Wild Ride; charging across the sky on his eight-legged horse, Sleipnir; a very awe-inspiring vision.

    In ancient times, Germanic and Norse children would leave their boots out by the hearth on Solstice Eve, filled with hay and sugar, for Sleipnir's journey.  In return, Wotan would leave them a gift for their kindness. 

    The first night of Yule is called The Mothernight, where Frigga and the Disir (female ancestral spirits) are especially honoured on this night. Mothers Night is appropriately named, as it represents the rebirth of the world from the darkness of winter. This is the date with the shortest day and the longest night of the year. A traditional vigil from dusk to dawn is held on the Mothers night, to make sure that the sun will rise again and welcome her when she does.

    Celebration: 

    The festivals are varied, however a lot of the Yule festival traditions like mistletoe, yule logs, have been incorporated into the Christmas traditions.
