Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice, Yule, Mid-Winter or Alban Arthan is the celebration of the rebirth of the sun after the longest night of the year.  It is one of the eight solar festivals comprising the Wheel of the Year.  Nourished in the womb of the Goddess during the dark time of the year, the sun symbolises the God born anew.  Plants that remain evergreen such as fir trees, holly and mistletoe are used as decorations.

The Goddess at Winter Solstice wears a crown of holly and mistletoe as she awaits the birth of her child.
