Did you realize that this past December 21st was the obscure holiday of "Yule". It is more of a pagan tradition versus an actual holiday.
As with any obscure holiday, there are always some great informational and recipe links attached to them. Some of the best links for this particular day include the following links:
Each of the links has some great information, and even some recipes to try on your family and friends at your next yule celebration. When you get in your kitchen with your family and friends, that is when the real fun can begin, and the creation of not only some great recipes takes place,but the creation of wonderful culinary memories that get created. What you create in the kitchen for this day, may become a favorite later on down the road.
