Pagan Carols

As we are approaching Yule, it dawned on me yesterday that I really didn't know any Pagan carols suitable for the season. All I know are the traditional Christmas carols. I am browsing the community forums over at Sacred Mists and one of my sisters posted a carol that she had found online. It is to the tune of Silent Night.

A Pagan Silent Night

Silent night, Solstice Night
All is calm, all is bright

Nature slumbers in forest and glen

Till in Springtime She wakens again

Sleeping spirits grow strong!

Sleeping spirits grow strong!

Silent night, Solstice night

Silver moon shining bright

Snowfall blankets the slumbering
Yule fires welcome the Sun's rebirth
Hark, the Light is reborn!

Hark, the Light is reborn!

Silent night, Solstice night

Quiet rest till the Light

Turning ever the rolling Wheel
Brings the Winter to comfort and heal

Rest your spirit in peace!

Rest your spirit in peace!

I absolutely love this :) If anyone knows of any others that you would like to share I would love to see them. :) I also looked online and came across a link that you may like as well. It also has several Pagan Carols. http://www.joellessacredgrove.com/Carols/carols.html

Home Again :)

Merry Meet,

It has been quite some time since I have taken the time to write. My mundane world has been quite a bit hectic, but my bigger issue is I have been sick for quite some time. I still am, but seem to finally be getting a bit of energy back. I got the swine flue back in October. It moved into an infection in my lungs which I have been duking it out with for quite some time. The current issue is an infection in my ear which will not go away. It causes me pain at night that makes it very difficult to sleep. As a result I have been really tired these past couple of months and have not been up to much of anything besides relaxing when I can and taking care of my children.

As I am sitting here writing this I am listening to the Winter Solstice channel on aolradio. I just found this channel this afternoon and I am so relaxed listening to it. I forgot what a huge impact music can make on my mood. Definately something I would recommend you check out as we are getting prepared for Yule.

I fully intend to try to get back into everything full speed as I have missed being an active part of Sacred Mists. I have not stopped practicing my faith. I have been doing meditations and working on my healing and divination skills in some of my free time, I just not have been working online on it.

In any event today is my first day back at Sacred Mists in quite some time and it really does feel good to be home :))))

Love and Blessings
