In wiccian practices, this is called Yule. This is the longest night of the year. Following that is the sun’s “rebirth” and lengthening of days. Yule is celebrated as the rebirth of the Great God, who is viewed as the newborn solstice sun. In some traddition, Yule is considered to be the beginning of the new year.
