I love the winter holidays. Solstice is one of my favorite Sabbaths. My spouse and I have different religious practices under the same umbrella, so we celebrate Yule a bit differently.
I don’t really decorate, however, because it is a lot of work I really love to avoid. My favorite decoration however is a tie between the altar set for Solstice and the tree.
This year we are not doing a Yule altar as my parents will be here and they are of a completely different faith which does not observe any of the holidays.
We have however bought a tree. A Japanese Holly that shouldn’t get any taller than I. We have named him Chadwick and hope that he will be with our family as a more flourished Holly, and next year be ready to be adorned with some ornaments that are heavier than our home made ones cinnamon clay ones.
