Well, Yule is on Sunday this year (as I'm quite sure all of you noticed
), which means my birthday is on Monday. Since nobody wants to leave their house on a monday night after they worked and just got home, I'm having a birthday dinner here at my home on Yule.
We'll be feasting with friends and celebrating my birthday!
For the celebration, me and Grimwell will have a ritual later that night. I would love to get out of the city, but I don't think it's going to be in the cards this year (we have a car, but with daily highs of -25 degrees Celcius, getting on average to temps of -40 C once you factor in Windchill, the car engine may freeze if left out long enough).
Enjoy your woods Crazy, and perhaps if you could put in a good word for me???
Anyways, after that, my actual birthday will be just me at home, enjoying the day, and meeting Grimwell at my favourite restaurant for a birthday dinner.
Then December 24 is traditionally, when I go to visit family and give and recieve Christmas gifts. This year, we have even convinced Grimwell's Mother to do Christmas on the 24th, which means that we can actually spend Christmas Day at home relaxing!
To end it off, Me and Grimwell celebrate Twelveth Night. Which means that 12 days after Yule (generally co-inciding with January 1st), me and Grimwell exchange our gifts of the Season, to celebrate that the sun has indeed returned (and twelve days after Yule, we can actually tell that our "gifts to the God" have been accepted and light is returning with our own eyes).
So, that'll be our plans! Whose next?
