Yuletide, as the cliche goes, is lost in the mists of time. The term “Yule” is said to refer to the month of December amongst the Germanic peoples of Northern Europe and Scandinavia. It possibly refers to the “wild hunt” of gods hunting in the northern skies of Europe, possibly inspired by the northern lights.
