Yule... what is yule?

Just look at my tree... totally magazine worthy, if I do say so myself.


(I took pictures for you before Grant gets a hold of it.
This could be the LAST year we have a tree)

Yule is an archaic term for christmas. its origin is Old English and can be compared with an Old Norse word, Jol, which was originally applied to a heathen festival lasting twelve days and later to christmas. Duh.

Thanks, Mase. What was I thinking.

I thought a yule was a log, a big one, that you burn in a fire. mason's explanation sounds better, at least it sounds smarter.

How come Mason got a reply from the blog author. Gosh, just 'cause he sounds all smart and stuff...

Emily said...

honestly, mason probably won't read the comments on this post again, which is why I never comment on a comment. I think you (and now Ash) are the only ones who re-check the comments. But I appreciate your loyalty.

listen people, you are all jealous because my response was the only one creative enough to get a response from the blog author. Thanks for responding emily.
