Yule, Season of Light
Take time for a night walk to enjoy fresh fallen snow or the crisp cool night air. Look up ,count the stars, gaze at the moon or watch the wind blow the silver clouds across the sky.
Bring some boughs of pine and holly into your home to place on the mantel , hang over or on the door. Smell their lovely scent accented with the cold winter air.
Bake your favorite cookies, cakes or pies and smell their luscious scents waft through the house.
Create pomander balls either with oranges or apples. They smell so good while they cure and even afterwards.
Basic Pomander recipe:
1 small apple or orange,
Using a fork prick holes in the skin of your chosen fruit, poke a clove into each hole.
After you've covered your fruit with cloves, roll in in a cinnamon filled bowl til the cinnamon is distributed all over the fruit. Shake off excess cinnamon.
Place your pomander onto a small dish and set on a table, shelve etc. and enjoy the wonderful smell of it.
