Yule

At Yule is where it starts,
the wreath, the wassailing,
the ritual, the search for Sunna.

At Yule is where it starts,
the Wild Hunt, the binding,
the wandering, the feeding of Sleipnir,
the spirits who wander about to greet us.

At Yule is where it ends,
the nights of 12, the unfolding of our Wyrd,
 the all night vigil, the pledge to Ingvi,
the burial of the boar´s head.

For Yule is both the ending and the beginning.
The Darkness and the Light.
It is where our Troth is most sacred
and where the ties to the Elder Kin are most binding.
