9 Gifts of the Wyrd: Yule Traditions Old and New
Welcome to episode 9 of Gifts of the Wyrd. Thank you for your patience for this episode. Jan talks about Yule. Old traditions and new. Adapting traditions to modern practice or making new Yule traditions that are right for you and your family today.
A traditional song to sing around an apple or adapt to another fruit or nut bearing tree. (I have changed only a couple words of the text to honor the Gods and to make it inclusive to all who will sing.).
Old Apple tree, we'll wassail thee
And hoping thou wilt bear.
The Gods do know where we may go
To be merry another year.
To blow well and to bear well,
And so merry let us be:
Let every one drink up their cup
And health to the old apple tree.
(shouted)Old apple tree we wassail thee and hope that thou wilt bear. Apples now! Hats full! Caps Full! Three bushel bags full! And a little heap under the stair. Three Cheers for the old apple tree - Hip hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray!
