Solstice Festivals

The summer and winter solstice are the oldest festivals known to man. The winter solstice this year takes place on Dec 21 at 12:11 P.M. Eastern Standard Time.  This Druidic festival was called ‘Yule’ and the custom was to burn a log which was coated with flour, decked with garlands and sprinkled with cider or ale.  The log had to come from your own land or received as a gift and never purchased.  It was lit with ashes from the previous year’s log.  This represented light being passed from one year to the next.
