Happy Yule!

We celebrate the 12 nights of Yule and Winter Solstice complete with ale drinking, feasts and offerings to the Gods. What do you celebrate in your traditions? Solstice? Christmas? Hannukkah or other. I'd love to know and see pics of your celebrations. We usually decorate a tree. My husband is a chef and makes roasts for meat eaters and vegan roasts for vegans and vegetarians. This year we did a borscht soup to celebrate the night of the wild hunt and we did a raspberry vegan cake for Mother's Night and to honor Frigga and our female ancestors. I will continue to put more photos up in this post. I hope that you all have a wonderful holiday season whatever or however you celebrate. Cheers!

Delicious cranberry walnut bread warmed. 

Lovely mjolnir for our altar. 

I dressed up the day of Yule in this gothic skirt I found online.

Skinny Puppy tour

Friends and I got together and went to the Skinny Puppy tour. It was awesome. We got there just in time for Youth Code and Haujobb later and then Front Line Assembly. All the bands were rad. I had never seen Youth Code or Haujobb before so that was a real treat. I looove Front Line Assembly and Skinny Puppy and have been listening to Skinny Puppy since I was younger so it was cool to see them perform again. I hope to see them for a third time in the future. It was a great start to my holiday celebrations. I always like going to Warfield. The staff is very friendly there.
