Every December we would gather at Kwix & S2K's place to celebrate the Winter Solstice. It was a sharedish, so there was loads of good food. We also traditionally used this gathering to exchange gifts. I have lots of happy memories crowded on their patchwork couch. Anyway, just before midnight they would hand out candles - often candles they made for us as gifts - then when the hour struck we'd run around like mad lighting all the candles in the house. It was soooooo much fun! We'd also go out to their yard to light the Yule log. Sometimes someone would sing a Yule related song.

It meant a lot to me to participate in this important event with them - that I was invited to celebrate with them and that they trusted me to respect the tradition.

It meant a lot to me to have the time together with my loved ones, because our group is very much a family.

I'm lighting a candle tonight for you guys. Welcome back the sun!

Yeah, I only attended one Yule party, but it was a blast! And very memorable. I think the Yule party was one of the first times I met Sarah and Kenton... I could be wrong about that, but those are my first memories of them.

Miss you too...
Oh, I'm still around. Actually, I have a very long post I have been working on since September. No, really!!

I miss Yule. We don't have the same friendbase up here, no one who really feels like family to me. Close friends yes; family no. You guys are impossible to replace. That goes for the whole gang as well. Thanks for remembering us.

Damn.... what he said.

Seriously though, we'd both give anything to be able to still do Yule. I loved having all my loved ones crammed into our house. I loved that you all came and celebrated with us. I love that so many people remember that couch fondly.

Weirdly I miss making the candles.

We miss you guys so much.
