The Yule Festival was originally the Germanic winter solstice festival, celebrated on the astronomical date, December 21 ("Jul Moon"), in honor of the rebirth of the sun. In Northern European countries, the Yule Festival takes place at Christmas. There it is still called "Jul", which is reflected in the English "Yule".
