Pagan Legends & Lore for December

December, the twelfth and final month of the current Gregorian calendar and the first month Winter, derives its name from decem, the Latin word meaning ten, as December was the tenth month of the old Roman calendar.

The traditional birthstone amulets of December are the blue zircon and turquoise. The traditional flowers of December are holly, mistletoe, and poinsettia.

December is shared by the astrological signs of Sagittarius the Centaur-Archer and Capricorn the Goat, and is sacred to the following Pagan deities: Attis, Dionysus, Frey, Freya or Freyja, Kriss Kringle the Pagan god of Yule, Lucina, Woden, and the Wiccan Horned God consort of the Wiccan Goddess.

During the month of December, the Great Solar Wheel of the Year is turned to the Winter Solstice, one of the four Lesser Sabbats celebrated each year by Pagans, Wiccans, and Witches throughout the world.

Halcyon Days

     According to ancient legend, the seven days before the winter solstice and the seven days following it are a special time of tranquility and calm, due to the magickal powers of the halcyon a fabled bird who nested on the sea and calmed the wind and the waves during the winter solstice.

     In Puerto Rico, the Yule Child is honored by a religious festival called Navidades, which begins annually on this day. It is celebrated until the sixth of January.

Lessons Learned

I've learned that it is best to give advice in only two circumstances; when it is requested and when it is a life-threatening situation.
