Baking and prepping for Christmas lunch tomorrow, I was reminded of Colleda. This sweet maiden goddess was a Serbian solstice goddess. Her merry personality can be seen in the bright light of the burning Yule log, as she represented the promise of a return of the spring sun and new growth. Children went door to door asking for sweet cakes from her worshipers since the delicious treats were pleasing to the goddess.
