Deck the Starry Halls! - is a limited edition Starry Smudge just in time for the Winter Solstice popularly known in modern times as "Yule."
"The name for the festival of the Winter Solstice in Druidry is Alban Arthan, which means 'The Light of Arthur'. Some Druid Orders believe this means the Light of the hero King Arthur Pendragon who is symbolically reborn as the Sun Child (The Mabon) at the time of the Solstice. Others see the Light belonging to the star constellation known as the Great Bear (or the Plough) - Arthur, or Art, being Gaelic for Bear. This constellation shines out in the sky and can symbolise the rebirth of the Sun." - The Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids.
Deck the Starry Halls sets to capture the essence of Winter Solstice in the great halls of Old, it creates a temple that interweaves connectedness across history and culture, the "coming together" of all peoples at this special time of year, regardless of spiritual pathwalking. Winter Solstice is a time of Celebration and of Light; across many cultural beliefs the return of the Sun God born at the longest night is honoured and virtues of honour, goodwill, connectedness and charity are upheld.
In the ancient halls throughout history, such charitable acts were coupled with revelry and merriment; the Winter Solstice was considered a time when social rank could be turned upside down, when Pauper and King were equal and all were seen as connected in humanity. Lavish displays were held, gifts were given, great halls were decorated and people danced long into the night.
Deck the Starry Halls creates a temple that embodies the energetic imprint of what King Arthurs court might have felt like at Winter Solstice; the aroma captures the essence of a great hall decoarated with seasonal herbs and forest decorations brought inside, the celebration of the Old ways, the magick of Trees brought indoors, and the connectedness of all humankind on Eaarth, not separate from the great Mother, but part of her.
