Yule Songs & Carols
for a Pagan's Solstice
On Winter Solstice, we celebrate this wondrous Pagan holiday the rebirth of the Sun with the merry sound of Yule songs...
Wait what Yule songs??
Winter Solstice is one of my favourite Wiccan Sabbats. One of the things I missed most as a Wiccan, though, was gathering with friends and singing Christmas carols.
I always loved the music (even if it was overplayed all month), and I loved the sense of celebration and joy they evoked.
So naturally as a Wiccan I needed new versions of those old Christmas carols ones that celebrate the joy of this oh-so-Pagan holiday.
Since then, I've heard from many Pagans who want Yule songs and Solstice Carols for themselves, so I thought I should make a collection of them for you to sing along. And here it is!
At Last: The Pagan Version
of Christmas Carols
Wouldn’t it be grand to have our own Pagan songs for Yule rituals and holiday gatherings?
We all know by now that Christmas was Pagan in origin (all but the “Christ” part)...
- the tree
- the holly
- the mistletoe
- the gingerbread men
- the feasting
- the gifting
- the general celebration...
Some of the old Christmas carols still carry that sense of Pagan celebration, just below the surface. So I re-Paganized those to make them fitting for Wiccans.
Others well, they had to be remade from scratch. So the Goddess helped me create new lyrics for Solstice songs for Pagans!
All of the new songs use the melodies from traditional Christmas carols, so they’ll be easy for you to learn you can start singing them right away.
I’d like to share some of them with you here, so please see below for links to the lyrics of some of my fave Wiccan Yule songs.
