As the Wheel of the Year makes another turn, the endless rhythm of the seasons continues.
Following this week’s Witchy Challenge of Holiday Cheer, I decided to prepare a few Yule Greetings cards. You are free to reuse them in any way you like, for example, add your name to it and send it to your pagan friends!
The first one was inspired by a folk rhyme that invites Yule blessings: “Wreath on the door, mistletoe indoors, food and clothing donations, sunflower seeds outside for birds, ring the bell to greet the Solstice Morn, and perform magick for a peaceful planet.”
New Year’s Cheer
This one was inspired by “Bless thou to me mine eye”, a celtic prayer for the New year. I love the line “May my neighbor bless me”!
Yule Greetings Postcard
I picked this Yule blessing from Aslinn Dhan’s Christian Witches’ Book of Shadows, it was originally much longer.
Yule Blessing Spell
A simple candle wish for the Winter Solstice. Always practice fire safety and don’t let candles burn unattended.

My Light Ritual for Yule
On my altar, I am celebrating the return of the light with some candle Magick. This ritual was adapted from a spell written by Cerridwen Iris Shead in Llewellyn’s 2006 Spells Almanac.
You will need:
- Image of The World
- 3 white candles
- Your book of mirrors or journal
Have a very Blessed Yuletide!!
