On Midwinters day

good song

I haven't seen Frosty the Snowman on here yet. it's one that is a classic winter song, with no attachments other than the magic hat. Maybe not pagan in nature, but still a fun one to sing :)

Yule Songs

My favorite is "Deck the Halls," which refers to several Pagan traditions, such as burning the Yule Log and decorating with Holly.

Yule Music

I recently found Beautiful Darkness, Celebrating the Winter Solstice by Jessica Radcliffe; Lisa Ekström; Martin Simpson. It is wonderful!!

Classic Tune with Pagan Meaning

The tune of "Oh Holy Night" always gives me goosebumps, so to make it meaningful for me, I just rewrote most of the words. O Solstice Night The Lady's Moon is glowing It is the night of Her dear Sun's rebirth Long lay the world With winter's cold wind blowing Til the Oak King - sets alight - the night sky The thrill of hope The darkened world rejoices For yonder breaks A new and glorious morn Dawn is in the East Now see, the Earth Rejoices Oh Light arise Oh Light, arise once more Oh Light Oh Solstice Light Oh Light arise (Still works like a charm.)

Re: Yule Songs

Blackmore's Night has a great holiday album with "paganized" carols called "Winter Carols" Many of the songs are on youtube, but you can also but the CD here. http://www.amazon.com/Winter-Carols-Blackmores-Night/dp/B000ILZ05G/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1322577634 sr=8-1

Best Yule Song

How about Ian Anderson's Jethro Tull song "Ring Out Solstice Bells" from the "Songs from the Wood"album? The whole album has very Pagan-oriented music.
