Group Yule Prayer

Each candle we light is a star.
Let us light as many as we can, and spend time among the stars we've created on Earth.
Let us know that their twinkling is them smiling, because they know a secret:
the Sun will be coming back, and not only returning, but strengthening,
from this day through many,
from this darkest of nights.
On Yule, let us laugh with the stars at our fear of eternal darkness,
laugh with these earthly stars we've lit.
