Did you know stories about Viking communities throughout the centuries tell of many seasonal events similar to those we know now, including Jul or Yule. The old Nordic tradition of winter solstice celebrated the return of the sun to the Nordic lands. When the sun reached its lowest point in the sky, this was a sign daylight and warmth would soon be returning.
