Don't forget the fairies of winter. During the darkest days of the year, why not work a little charm and invite the benevolent fairies of winter to stay in your house through the Winter Solstice festivities? They can hide out in the greenery and take refuge in the Yule tree and enjoy the holidays with you. According to tradition, a family who kindly invited the fairy folk out of the cold was rewarded with prosperity in the coming year. Stand at the threshold at sunset-a classic between time-and invite them in. You will notice this spell is worded carefully to avoid fairy mischief. Happy holidays!
Gentle fairies of the winter Hear my call,
I invite your caring presence To my hall.
You are welcome within,
So long as you stay
You may rest here with us And enjoy the revelry!
