Holda Holda the Yuletide Goddess

Holda

As with many ancient goddesses, Holda is complex. Also called Hulde and Frau  Holle, she goes by a variety of names and takes different forms, depending on  locale and culture. In her form as a beneficent and noble White Lady, Holda is  beautiful and stately, with long, flowing golden hair, which shines with  sunlight as she combs it. She wears a white gown covered with a magical white  goose down cape. At Yuletide, she travels the world in a carriage and bestows  good health, good fortune, and other gifts to humans that honor  her. She not only is connected with Winter Solstice itself, but also with the holiday season that continues many of its customs, the 12 days of  Christmas–from December 25 through January 6.

Wishing everyone a safe, joyful, healthy and blissful holiday blessings, Lady Rose
