10 Great Gifts for the Witch in your Life.
The holiday season is quickly approaching and you may be stuck as what to buy your witch friends and family. Or, should you buy anything at all for them. Traditions very and depending on how they and you feel about Yule/ Christmas will greatly determine how you can proceed. I myself don’t mind receiving gifts nor do I mind that my Christian family and friends Celebrating their holiday with mine.
Christians often adapted pagan holidays and put a Christian spin on them so they could get the pagans aboard with their ideology. I am not here to discount Christian belief’s all spiritual systems have merit, I am just giving you a brief history so if you do not celebrate Yule or the Solstice in some way you can better understand the traditions’.
Yule, the winter solstice, is a time of great symbolism and power. It marks the return of the sun, when the days finally begin to get a little longer. It's also a time to celebrate with family and friends, and share the spirit of giving during the holidays. In pre-Christian Scandinavia, the Feast of Juul, or Yule, lasted for 12 days celebrating the rebirth of the sun and giving rise to the custom of burning a Yule log. In ancient Rome, the winter solstice was celebrated at the Feast of Saturnalia, to honor Saturn, the god of agricultural bounty.
