Have a Cool Yule - Winter Solstice Today
The precise moment of the 2008 solstice will be December 21, 2008 at 7:04 AM EST and 12:04 UT (Universal Time).
Today is the beginning of Yule, the winter solstice celebration of the Germanic pagans still celebrated by some new (old?) age movements around the world. It is also one of the eight solar holidays, or sabbats, of Paganism.
In modern Paganism, Yule is celebrated on the winter solstice, which is this morning, at precisely 04:04 Pacific Standard Time (-08:00 UTC).
All pagans celebrate!
