Word of the Day: Yule
yule / yo͞ol
- an antiquated term for Christmas and the Christmas season
Here we have battle and blazing eyes,
And chance and honour and high surprise,
But our homes are under miraculous skies
Where the yule tale was begun.
from ‘The House of Christmas’ by G.K. Chesterton, 1874-1936
It’s getting on to the Yule Tide
The one that comes every year
Where smiling eyes are all around
And hearts that count are here[.]
from ‘The Christmas Key’ by Thomas K. Hunt, ?-

Inside, the fireplace is brightly lit, and the Yule log crackles with orange and crimson sparks.
Vera Nazarian, 1966-
