The Ancient Germanic peoples divided the year into two halves. During the half with more light, the days last longer than the nights, while during the darker half, it is the other way around. As the lighter half of a 24-hour period, from sunrise to sunset, is called ‘day’, and the darker half, from dusk to dawn, is called ‘night’, so we can also use the names ‘summer’ and ‘winter’ for the corresponding halves of the year. However, these indications should not be confused with both seasons with the same names, because now these names do not refer to two of the four annual seasons, but to both halves of a year. By the way, did you know that the summer half is one week longer than the winter half (at the northern hemisphere)?
In the middle of both halves, the Ancient Germanic peoples traditionally celebrated a great festival. They called the period of midsummer ‘Litha’, and the Litha Festival was held around the upper solstice, when the celestial orbit of the sun Helios annually is the greatest. They called the period of midwinter ‘Yule’, and the Yule Festival was held around the lower solstice, when Helios’ celestial archway annually is the smallest. The highlight of the Yule Festival was always from the last of three longest nights to the subsequent rebirth of the light during the moment of sunrise.
In our current calendar system, forced upon us by Rome (the Vatican), we now celebrate this Rebirth of the Lightbringer on December 25th. But in the pure Lunar Year Calendar of the Ancient Germanic peoples, the Yule Festival always falls somewhere within the pure lunar month of ‘Before-Yule-Moon’ or within the subsequent pure lunar month of ‘After-Yule-Moon’. This year, the annual celebration of the Rebirth of the Lightbringer falls on 8 Before-Yule-Moon.
When we would start to use a pure Lunar Year Calendar again, then the influence of the lunar cycle on our (subconscious) life would become increasingly clear to many more people. And that is exactly the reason why Rome put an end to such “pagan” practices, to be able to rule as a king One-Eye over the thereby blinded Germanic peoples. That is at least my conclusion. What is yours?
Anyway, I would very much like to wish you and your loved ones a Merry Midwinter Festival, and that it may remind us that the Light can also be born again in us.
