Bohemian Mama: Advent, Christmas, and Yule
The yurt is ideal for Christmas, it radiates Christmas light. But right now, I’m just counting down to the winter Solstice, when the light begins regaining lost ground, a prelude to Christmas. We’ll celebrate Yule with gratitude, cheering the light as it overcomes darkness. Yarrow can watch the big log burn in the woodstove for hours. We’ll drink mulled wine, eat clementines and plan for spring.
This year, we’re using an extra Christmas stocking for Yarrow, which could either continue as hers or be replaced by one made especially for her, depending on her Babkas, who are the knitters in the family. I can’t wait to see her wide eyes and laughing little smile when she sees the tree with all it’s touchable attractions dancing in the candle light!
