Can I ask you, Oak King...

Why not just wish everyone a Merry Christmas?
Considering people celebrate it sincerely, why would you not respect their celebration by wishing them a Merry Christmas or at least seasonal greetings?

I think Yule which is the solstice is not a reason to celebrate.
So why Yule?

Love Judders Lady...xx

<<Can I ask you, Oak King... >>

of course you may.......

<<Why not just wish everyone a Merry Christmas?>>

Because as this is the 'Other religions' Board it was appropriate to post a Yule greeting, besides it's not Christmas yet.

<<Considering people celebrate it sincerely, why would you not respect their celebration by wishing them a Merry Christmas or at least seasonal greetings?>>

I shall wish hem exactly that when the time is appropriate.

<<I think Yule which is the solstice is not a reason to celebrate.

Frankly I dont give a fiddlers F*** for what you think

A bit early I know, but:

Wassail! Wassail!
All over the town!
Our bread is so musty
Our cheese is so brown!
God send our master a good crop of corn,
With the wassailing bowl we drink to thee!



Or the traditional version


Here we come a-wassailing
Among the leaves so green;
Here we come a-wandering
So fair to be seen.

Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail too;
And God bless you and send you a Happy New Year
And God send you a Happy New Year.

Our wassail cup is made
Of the rosemary tree,
And so is your beer
Of the best barley.


We are not daily beggars
That beg from door to door;
But we are neighbours' children,
Whom you have seen before.


Call up the butler of this house,
Put on his golden ring.
Let him bring us up a glass of beer,
And better we shall sing.


We have got a little purse
Of stretching leather skin;
We want a little of your money
To line it well within.


Bring us out a table
And spread it with a cloth;
Bring us out a mouldy cheese,
And some of your Christmas loaf.


God bless the master of this house
Likewise the mistress too,
And all the little children
That round the table go


Good master and good mistress,
While you're sitting by the fire,
Pray think of us poor children
Who are wandering in the mire.

Now I suppose I must embark on an arduous twelve day session of feasting and revelry to celebrate *sigh*

By the way Oak, I see according to the excellent Robert Graves, your namesake has conquered the Holly King! Well done that Anthropomorphic Personification; the year will start quickening again in no time now.

What is "Christmas"?

A, getting smaller, contingent celebrate it as a "Christmas" as the truth behind this misnomer becomes more widespread.

Why would prefer "seasons greetings" instead of Happy Yuletide?

Well in that case you 'thought'  WRONG... (once again).

Yule celebrations are a lot older in this culture than the bastardised Roman version we jolly along to today.. Jesus is NOT the reason for the Season - unless you think he is a Sun God of course..

You really do need to stop and think before you twitter Lynne..


BTW Oaky:

Yule Blessings to you and yours also
