Yule is observed on the day of the Winter Solstice. Also known as Jul, Yule predates the Christmas holiday by thousands of years. There is some debate as to the origin of the word Yule. Some linguists suggest the word is derived from “Iul”, the Anglo-Saxon word for wheel. This makes a connection to a Celtic calendar, the Wheel of the Year. In the Norse culture, “Jul” refers to the god Odin. Odin was celebrated during Yule as well. Yule celebrations included bonfires; decorating with holly, mistletoe, and the boughs of evergreen trees; feasts; and gift giving.
