Yule.

Winter Celebrations.

Now enveloped into the New Year celebrations, but still marked by many northern-European countries from the 31st December to 3rd January each year with slightly diffrent names.

Russia calls it the winter frost and this is as close to the Santa tradition or their father frost arriving with childrens gifts, meanwhile the rest of.Europe has left us the one last hint of the Yule log Christmas cake.

Different religions and calanders all have there own New Years, but they help us to reflect on the year past and all that has occured in it, good and bad. Sometimes this is also good to reflect and consider all the good things that Jesus has done for us, even since the day we were saved.

Psalm 141:5,  Ecclesiastes 3:6,  Acts 10:34,  1 Peter 4:14.

Happy New Year.

Stonehenge and Newgrange.

Solstice.

The midwinter festival has began many people will brave the elements to try to meet at these two famous sites, but there are also many more across Europe as well as these islands. People have always sought out a higher power and many mouments have been constructed around the world to show this connection with the stars, moon and sun.

But today the world has many ism’s of beliefe and unbellfe, there is really only one religion in the world which gives us any hope for this life and eternity and that is Christianity. All relgions expect something, they have big and little heads, which are either gods of the teachings of men/a man.

1 Corinthians 15,  Ephesians 2:12-16, 1 Timothy 1 :15-16.

Happy Christmass to all of you who read this blog. Many Thanks.
