As many of you may or may not know, Yule has become a very Christianized time of year. The Yule tree, Yule log, and the birth and an infant are all "borrowed" from Paganism although most Christians won't admit it! As you will see, most of the activities I will list here are turned around and used by the Christians.

-String popcorn or cranberries for outdoor trees.
-Decorate pine cones with glue and glitter as symbols of the fairies and put them on the Yule tree.
