Axial tilt...

Its the reason for the season.

Mule Breath wishes the world a happy solstice celebration... regardless of the tradition to which you adhere or the ritual you wish to follow...

...and a satisfying, productive new year!

Ring Out The Solstice Bells

Now is the solstice of the year,
Winter is the glad song that you hear.
Seven maids move in seven time.
Have the lads up ready in a line.
Ring out these bells.
Ring out, ring solstice bells.
Ring solstice bells.

 Join together beneath the mistletoe.
By the holy oak whereon it grows.
Seven druids dance in seven time.
Sing the song the bells call, loudly chiming.
 Ring out these bells.
Ring out, ring solstice bells.
Ring solstice bells.

 Praise be to the distant sister sun,
Joyful as the silver planets run.
Seven maids move in seven time.
Sing the song the bells call,
loudly chiming. Ring out those bells.
Ring out, ring solstice bells.
Ring solstice bells.
Ring on, ring out.
Ring on, ring out.
