YuleLikeIt - December 17-19, 2010 Summerland Bonita Springs, Florida
There is a story told of the first people facing the cold winter and the sun so far away in the sky when the people petitioned the moon to ask for help, she told them to raise their voices in song and the sun would return. But they did not know what "song" was, so the moon told them to go to the top of the mountain, put their heart and soul to their voice . and "yule". So they did .They took their drums and their voices and opened their hearts . the first "yuletide". The sun heard and was amazed and curious. He started moving closer the earth warmed and spring began . the circle of life continued. So, every time since, when the sun goes far in the sky and the earth is cold . earth's people "yule" for the sun and he is pleased. He returns to warm us and the Mother Earth, bringing forth the light.
We, as Earth's people, will bring our drums and our voices to the fire circle. We will light the "yule" log and let the sun hear our prayers. We will fulfill the promise of returning light with our song!
