December 2005 Merlian Newsletter

Dear Readers,

In the pagan wheel of the year, the winter solstice is the time of Yule . The winter solstice usually falls on December 21st or 22nd. Christmas is celebrated on December 25 .

T he Jewish holiday of Hanukkah also takes place in the month of December.

In the United Kingdom, the weekday after Christmas is called Boxing Day and is a public holiday. A common story of Boxing Day’s origins is that servants and tradesmen received Christmas gifts from their employers on the first weekday after Christmas. These were generally called their “Christmas boxes.”
