How To Make a Pagan Nativity Scene For Yule : Pagan Nativity Scene - So your neighbors all have cute little mangers in their yards, complete with plastic baby Jesus, light-up sheep, and a couple of Wise Men who have probably seen better days. Are you feeling a bit left out? After all, as Pagans, we don't really do the baby Jesus thing. But don't feel bad -- you can still set up a Nativity scene (or something close to it) that represents your Pagan or Wiccan beliefs. You can do this either in a large version to display on your lawn, or a smaller scale for indoor festivities.

Reindeer Food for Yule - If your family still gets visits from Santa Claus, it's traditional to leave out a plate of cookies and some milk for him -- after all, it's hard work flying around the whole world in one night. But what about his reindeer? They do most of the work, so why not leave a treat for them too? You can scatter it on the lawn before your kids go to bed, or leave it in a bowl near the stockings.
Yule Greeting Cards to Make On Your Own- It's hard to find Yule greeting cards commercially, and often when you do locate one you like, they can be expensive. Because there's not a huge market for Pagan or Wiccan greeting cards, sometimes it's just easier to make your own. With a little imagination -- and a couple of kids to help out if possible -- it's really easy to make stylish Yule cards that your friends will love. You can make a couple of different kinds of cards, depending on how much time you have, and your level of craftiness.
