December 27th – Celebrating the Snow

The eighth day of Yule is traditionally titled a “Celebration of Snow.” We seem to have returned to more normal temperatures around here, with no new beautiful, white snow. There are signs of winter; trees are barren, our backyard creatures (squirrels and various birds) aren’t nearly as busy as in the summer. Even without the iconic symbol of winter, nature goes through the same cycle of rest.
So for today, I’ll light a candle and be thankful for the turning of the wheel that supports all life. I’ll be thankful for the snow in the mountains, thankful for the water it returns to the earth for the summer and thankful for our cozy home that shields us when winter decides to blast.snow
