The Celtic celebration of the winter solstice was called the Alban Arthuan, one  of four celebrations that marked the solstice and equinox positions of the sun.  Alban Arthuan was a festival of peace and a celebration of waxing solar light.  Many honored the forthcoming Sun child by burning an oaken Yule log, and  honored the Goddess in her many Mother aspects. The Father God was honored in  various forms: as Santa Claus, the Old Sky God, Father Time, and the Holly King.
