Yule or Yalda originates from Mithraism and Zoroastrianism one of the oldest indo european religions linked to Persians. The Persian Yalda night sounds exactly the same and celebrated at the winter solstice. Happy Yule or Yalda.

The Hammer of Greatness 2. What was the Heathen Yule concerned with, as a religious celebration? As a matter of fact, we do not know exactly. Being Norwegian, I will write this from a Norwegian perspective. Yet this was not the original heathen date for Yule. It means that Yule begins today with the Winter Solstice and lasts until the 12 th of next year, if you are a heathen!
This descriptive term strongly suggests that drink was an important part of the celebration. We also know that apart from drinking a lot, there would also be feasting, banquets, games and song — and sacrifice to the gods and other powers of winter. But it is uncertain what exactly was celebrated during the Yule drinking. It has been suggested that they sacrificed for a good new year, for the dead, or that it was a sun — or light celebration to counter the darkness of winter. We can but speculate, and speculate I will, taking a mythological approach.
It would appear that the actual Yule banquets would last for three days and nights, and probably closer to the day of the Sacrifice on the 12 th of January than to the Solstice — as such the sacrifice and the banquet may have been a way of celebrating and giving thanks after three weeks of expectation, beginning with the Solstice and the gradual brightening of days. But how? Popular modern notions aside, it is a fact that we actually know very little about the Norse Pagan religion.
The day of the Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year, and in Norway, as in other countries to the far north, it is particularly short, lasting for a few hours at best. Yule began at Solstice and was a time of darkness when, day by day, the days grew longer, showing that the Sun was being reborn, and victorious.

So I cut it out. My bad. On the other hand, I am glad you found it. It tells me readers are not just skimming down the list. When I finished it I was convinced I would never read anything better. I was wrong, of course. Watcher on the Cast Iron Balcony is ok. Quite obviously I have a different taste in literature than yourself Cheers Diane. OK list. These will be the biggest WA stories to hit the big screen, exciting stuff….
What about the merrygoround by the sea. A wonderful piece of literature. Any thoughts? I think Hal Porter snuck in because most considered that a novel. I love A Fortunate Life and believe everyone should read it. No Morris West book included?

Just alerting any readers to my most recent novel which is set in Little Lon Is he writing the sequel because if it is half as good it will be brilliant.
Surpising choices for Patrick White and Peter Malouf, but on the whole a great list. How embarassing — I looked through the list again and saw that the getting of wisdom is included. Forgive my rashness! The media made it a bigger hit due to content and although the subject was a great choice, I felt the book was disappointing. Definitely not in the same league as other choices. I both loved and hated The Slap. Many acquaintances were reading it at the same time, and there was much passionate debate and argument about the issues that Tsiolkas raised, the characters attitudes and behaviours, their origins.
A great work of art is one that challenges the reader, creates unease and discomfort and this certainly did that. On an entirely different note I was delighted to see Kylie Tennant included in the Great list. I have read eleven of the entries and have three more on my shelves waiting. I will keep this list for reference, thank you for doing all that works for us. I agree, Gail Jones is fabulous. Hi Trish, I agree. I will be holding a new poll in the first days of January. Be sure to vote then. Thanks for your interest, John.
