Jul (Yule)

- Use the Yule log from the previous year to start the fire for this year and then burn a new yule log upon it.

- Decorate the yule tree with holly and bells. Put my circle of light outside the door.

- Put my boots outside my door and hope Odin fills them with candy as he passes my house during oskorei.

- I have feast to the solstice, Odin, Freyr, and Thor. They make sure there will be warm weather to come after the winter.

- Wait for twelfth night to arrive so I can make a solemn oath upon my hammer to do one thing to better myself in the coming year (like get a real fucking job).

- Throughout all of this there's much feasting, drinking, and merry-making.
