Druid Images during the Holidays (Solstice)

Postby fulbert-avebury » 30 Nov 2011, 05:00

My office is decorating for the holidays (Christmas trees, lights, a manger, menorah, etc.). While even I put up Christmas lights and have a little tree in my area, I started to think that a bit more diversity may be in order. Anybody have any ideas for some festive icon or item that could represent druidry or the solstice or something non-threateningly pagan along these lines that I can display on my desk, near a file cabinet, or the like?

Sprigs of Mistletoe decorated around the office would scream of a Druids Yule dwelling, yet muggles won't be able to ever notice the connection. :)

Too true...just watch out where you hang them. You never know who you might meet under it! :grin:
How about an Awen pendant. If people ask you could always just say it's an ornament that caught your eye. Then you could even leave it up all year & everyone would be used to it.

Misletoe, a sprig of holy, star ornament, a very small piece of wood (or ogam stick) to represent the Yule log and of course a candle for the return of the light ... Have fun! :)
