The Truth Yule Love




Christmas is not Yule and Yule is not Christmas, even though they are celebrated at the same time of year.  Yule is the older of the two holidays.  Using historical data, the author explains how the ancient Heathen celebration of Yule, with all its facets, was appropriated by Christianity to help bring about its own ends - the conversion of the Northern European peoples.  It is never too early to learn about the truth of Yule.  Buy your copy of Our Heilige Yule - A Reclamation Project by Terry Unger today!  Just click on the title as it appears on the right of this blog.  It will take you to the book's Amazon page.  Discover the excitement of Yule!!!

A Physical Book or an E-Book?


Waes Hael (good health and fortune) To All!  This past weekend, I was asked why I have not published my latest work, Our Heilige Yule - A Reclamation Project, as an e-book.  It is a fair question.  

Our Heilige Yule was written and published to be a physical handbook.  As such, the reader can underline interesting points and also write personal notes in the margins.  It is a book that can be put on a shelf and used year after year.  This is the reason.    



I am pleased to say that the response to Heilige Yule is overwhelmingly positive. Purchase the book and discover what the excitement is all about!

A Taste of Our Heilige Yule- A Reclamation Project


After the Protestant Reformation was over, the new leaders of Protestant Christianity made more than a few changes.  The one that is important here is the condemnation of Christmas.  The Protestant Church had no problem pointing out that Christmas was a Heathen holiday.  Protestant adherents were forbidden for many years to celebrate Christmas for this very reason.  The Roman Catholic Church never denied what they appropriated, even to this day, despite the biblical warning to not adopt Heathen customs (Deuteronomy 12:29 – 32).    page 11

The sun God Mithra, a Persian import, had many followers in the Roman Army.  Mithra’s followers believed that the god had incarnated as a man from a heavenly realm, was born of a virgin on December 25 for the purpose of human salvation.  Egyptians who lived in Rome at that time celebrated the birth of Horus, a God said to be of virgin birth by the Goddess Isis.  Depictions of Horus in the Egyptian temples were that of a babe in a crib with his virginal mother, Isis looking on.  At the other end of town were the gladiators, many of them Germanic prisoners of war.  The Germanics celebrated Yule, the turning of the wheel and the rebirth of the God (Balder) as a babe from the Goddess (they also noted with great respect that the days became longer - the return of the Sun, reborn in the sky and life).  page 27  


In the basic context of the Klaus myth, it’s pretty much the stuff of Indo-European myth and legend.  The God Thor flew across the sky in his wagon powered and pulled by two magical goats.  Woden (Wotan/Odin), the primary Germanic/Norse God, rode on his magical horse and was accompanied by his minions during what was known as the 'Wild Hunt.'  This 'Hunt' happened during the winter solstice/Yule period.  And, Woden was also known to grant wishes to those who deserved them.  page 65

Our Heilige Yule - A Reclamation Project ... published!


                         Available now at any "Amazon location" near you!!


Christmas is not Yule, and Yule is not Christmas.  Even though they are celebrated at the same time of the year, Yule is the much older of the two celebrations.  Historical data explains how the ancient Heathen Yule was appropriated by Christianity to help bring about its own ends - the conversion of the Northern European peoples to Christianity.   Our Heilige Yule - A Reclamation Project serves not only as a handbook for reclamation but also as a guide for celebration.

New Book In Process


In response to some of my readers:  

About a year ago I discontinued two of my books, A Yuletide Anthology and A Little Book of Yuletide Cheer.  The answer is no, I will not put them back in print.  However, I am researching a new book on Yuletide and hope to have it on the market by Winter Nights, 10/31/2018.  Some folks may find the information shocking.  Often, the truth is shocking.
