Pictures of my winter solstice altar, in the Druidic tradition celebrated as "Alban Arthan" (Welsh for "light of winter").


For me, the Yule/Christmas season is mostly about remembering family traditions that have been passed down from my grandparents (along with lots of--let's be honest--pretty ugly ornaments). I have no problem celebrating a kind of "secular" Christmas and decorating my whole apartment, but this year I decided to dedicate my bedroom altar specifically to the Druidic festival of the winter solstice. I have a main altar and a small side altar dedicated to faery work.

I love the very gold and yellow Goddess and child card next the card from the faery deck. What deck is it from?
