Bewitching Christmas Decor for the holidays
Wicca as an organized religion is very young, though the roots go back far back in time. It is also known as “Witchcraft”. You have reached the right place if the intention is to shop for beautiful Wicca/Witchcraft based spiritual decorations for Christmas and the Holiday season.
It is interesting to note that Christmas is actually an an adaptation of the Pagan/Wiccan holiday of Yule. In modern times, Yule is observed as a cultural festival and also with religious rites by some Christians and by some Neopagans.
Didn’t someone say – The World is Round. Let us have a look at some of the best Wicca decorations for Christmas/Yule.
Wiccan Ornaments for Christmas Trees
Whether it is Christmas that you are celebrating or Yule – there are lots of Wiccan Ornaments to make your place beautiful.
Pentacle, Tree of Life, Stonehenge, Wheel of the Year – the list is virtually endless. Have fun decorating your Christmas Tree with these lovely ornaments.
One of the things common between Yule and Christmas is the use of Wreaths for Decoration. Shown above is a wreath-headband that is meant to be worn.
The circular design of wreaths symbolizes the life cycle. It is a celebration of renewal and rebirth, one of Yule’s meanings.
Apart from actual Wreaths – you can also shop around for beautiful greeting cards, t-shirts, and buttons bearing the image of Wreaths.
These two decorations are from a print on demand service so you will not find them in your local shops. They are printed on porcelain and come with their own ribbon to use for hanging on a tree or anyplace that you would like to have look festive.
Decorating For Yule
You might find the need to have some Wiccan Christmas decorations to place on your tree if you happen to be a family of more than one faith.
Although if your entire family follows the tradition of Wicca you would most probably be celebrating Yule which happens to fall during the same time as the Christian holiday of Christmas. It would not be unusual to have a tree decorated with Christmas like ornaments during this Sabbat especially if you are planning on having a gathering of family and community to feast together and perhaps exchange gifts.
Celebrating The Winter Holiday
The celebration of Yule predates the Christian holiday and many of the more ancient traditions and symbols were actually incorporated into the holiday by the early christian leaders when trying to convert the pagans to the faith. In many Neopagan traditions the holiday falls during the time of the winter solstice. Wiccans celebrate Yule at the solstice and look at it as the time of the rebirth of the Great Horned Hunter god.
Sweep Away The Negative
Yule is a good time to use the broom or besom to cleanse the house. Obviously, you can do it literally but at Yule it is a good time to cleanse the negativity of the year out of your home. This is done by starting at the door and working your way clockwise around the home and each room and using a sweeping motion without actually touching the floor. You might want to recite something that has to do with the sweeping out of the bad from the room and the sweeping in of the good.
Not all decorations have to be on a tree
We often think of decorating a tree as a part of the Christmas celebration but there are other ways to decorate, too. Since we are looking at decorations for the Wiccan tradition this statue would work nicely for Yule. Just as some might have figurines or statues of Santa, a family who celebrates the winter solstice would most likely prefer this statue of a Horned god.
There is a wide variety of Wiccan kits available for Yule and Christmas. The items included in these kits are generally – Candles, Herbs, Oils, Incense, and Bath Salts.
