Christmas at Counter-Currents
Some Thoughts on Yule

3,342 words

Yule is the midwinter festival celebrated by my ancestors and by Germanic neo-pagans today. Midwinter is a time when much of nature seems to die or to depart. The trees are stripped of their leaves.

It begins with a towheaded Anglo-Saxon youth boarding an aeroplane and flying to Hyperborea, aka Tomteland, near Mora in Darlarna County, Sweden. Tomteland is translated by the “elves” who greet him as “Santa world” – however, this is only partly true. Jultomte is the Swedish translation of Santa Claus, but neither Santa Claus nor Father Christmas (yes, they were once separate things) were part of Nordic culture until recently.
