Craftsy Day

Yule decoration time

Yule tide

Today has been a day full of Yule preparations. I haven’t celebrated much the last 10 years – or actually, what I have been celebrating has more been the winter solstice. I count that as the natural new year’s celebration.

The more I learn about the existing traditions and decorations used around this time the more I see it’s a big mashup of pagan and Christian traditions. It’s not always clear which parts came from where. I choose to interpret it all in my own ways.
I have decided that what’s important for me is to decorate the house a bit to get a warmer feeling in all the darkness. Colours and lights giving a contrast to the grey darkness outside.

This day we managed to decorate an advent wreath, make some glögg and I’m finishing an advent’s calendar to hide some sweets in.

Quite a productive day.
