You may be wondering what you will write about during December, what with the abundance of holidays that are being celebrated. Yule is a good topic to start with. Not only a Pagan Sabbat, Yule is also the first day of winter. In 2011, Yule is December 22. Though the exact date varies from year to year, it will always fall between the 20th and the 22nd here in the United States. It is not always wise to go by the regular calendar to find this date, so always look a witches calendar to be sure.

Ideally, you will have already gotten to this but there is still time if you haven’t. Try planning your December topic articles for October or early December next year so that you do not feel rushed. (Or, if submitting to a publication, you will want to look at their editorial calendar.)

Writing Ideas

  1. Yule day recipes.

  2. What to do with the leftovers after a Yule feast, if there are any left.

  3. A guide to preparing for the big Yule event.

  8. The history of the Yule tree.

  9. What is Yule, and why it is not a materialistic Sabbat.

There are many other topics that can be written about for Yule. The sky is the limit, really. Think about what people need to know, or what they might consider fun or newsworthy, and go with it.
