( not x-mas but Yule is close enough I hope :D )

We celebrate the holidays for 12 days, starting on the winter solstice and ending on the first of new year.  We do the traditional X-mas on the 25th with my husbands family.  We get invited to the local Asatru blot and feast (omg the yummiest food, not to mention the mead!) on the 21st of December. Pretty much for 12 days we have special dinners with family and friends, play games, tell stories, exchange small gifts, give our thanks, and remember our loved ones who have passed on.  I love the December holidays, its kinda sad to know its almost over  :'(

Tonight we are just hanging out with family and friends, toss the last yule log into the fire and to watch the ball drop... and finishing off these lovely bottles of mead lol.  I love the togetherness of the holidays, and also the lovely smell of pine in the living room lol!

I'm glad that the holidays are coming to a close, especially after the hormonal ups and downs of certain members of the family that cause quite a bit of drama.

I had mead when we went to Ireland. Delicious and it's the only way to keep warm.

what is in mead? grain alcohol?

sylvia
Its an alcoholic drink made from honey, very yummy. We just got some from Montezuma Winery in NY which is really lovely, and a few bottles of homemade mead from a local farm, the men seem to like it as its a bit more... potent lol.

LOVE the holidays.  Especially this week AFTER Christmas. 
No school or homework, lots of new toys and games!
No bedtimes, no early mornings, no rushing here and there.

Next week is soon enough to be back into the same ol' same ol'.
