New for November – Have a Cool Yule

Nov 5th, 2017 | By | Category: Articles, Book News, Books, Books for Pagans

Christmas is not reliably a happy time for Pagans. As planet-lovers, the gross consumption, the waste of food, the gifts bought to be thrown away can be deeply depressing. There’s also the lingering feeling that this used to be our festival and that we lost it/ had it taken from us. Although in fairness, the Christians have lost it to Commercialmass for the greater part now.

Melusine Draco has an answer to all this midwinter gloom. Have a Cool Yule: How-To Survive (and Enjoy) the Mid-Winter Festival.

For the entire Pagan community Christmas should be one of the most sacred times of the year, but the lack of any formal written liturgy has consigned the festival to a minor observance in the Pagan calendar. Have a Cool Yule demonstrates that history proves the festival to be a wholly Pagan event, worthy of being acknowledged as one of the Great Festivals along with Beltaine and Samhain. With all the different strands of Pagan custom brought to the hearth-fire of the Mid-Winter Festival, we all have something to celebrate in time-honoured fashion, whether our ancestors are Briton, Celt, Norse or Anglo-Saxon.

So, whether you need to cheer yourself up, or want to put a smile on the face of a Pagan friend, this book is recommended seasonal reading.
