Every day for the 12 days leading up to Yule, we will be posting some ideas for crafts, spells and other witchy things to do in this festive season. We would love for you to join in and post your photos in the comments on our Facebook groups.
Here are some lovely ideas put forward by our lovely Heather, for things to do over the Yule period into New Year! Yule Blessings to you all!!
The holiday season is a good time to focus on prosperity. Fill the poppet with a bit of cinnamon, orange, or ginger, and maybe even a small coin to get the message across.
Are there any specific Yule traditions or activities in the area that you live? Share these with us on the Kitchen Witch Coven FB page.
This can be a good time for divination, research a method you haven't used before.
Walking in Nature
Go for a walk, collect natural items as you go. Use your collection to make a mandala, thanking Mother Earth/Nature for Her gifts to us throughout the year.
Choose a Deity associated with this time of year, who you know little about and do some research about Them.
Do you have an altar? Does it need clearing or cleansing?
If you don't, do you want to set one up, to see how it feels?
When preparing your meals today, think about where the ingredients were grown, where they came from, how they got to you. Say a blessing over them, and say thank you to everyone involved in the journey to your kitchen.
Feeding the Birds
Feed the wild birds. If you already do this, choose something different as a treat for them. If you don't have a garden, get a small pack of seed and when next on a walk in a park, explain to the birds that you are going to leave some food for them.
