*********

By the way, “God Jul” is Swedish for Merry Christmas, in fact the exact meaning is more like “Good Yule”.

Yule or Yuletide (“Yule time” or “Yule season”) is an indigenous midwinter festival celebrated by the Germanic peoples. Scholars have connected the original celebrations of Yule to the Wild Hunt, the god Odin, and the pagan Anglo-Saxon Mōdraniht. The earliest references to it are in the form of month names, where the Yule-tide period lasts somewhere around two months in length, falling along the end of the modern calendar year between what is now mid-November and early January.

Later departing from its pagan roots, Yule underwent Christianised reformulation, resulting in the term Christmastide. Many present-day Christmas customs and traditions such as the Yule log, Yule goat, Yule boar, Yule singing, and others stem from pagan Yule traditions. Terms with an etymological equivalent to Yule (Jul) are used in Nordic countries and Estonia to describe Christmas and other festivals occurring during the winter holiday season.

Yule is the modern version of Old English words ġēol or ġēohol and ġēola or ġēoli, with the former indicating the 12-day festival of “Yule” (later: “Christmastide”) and the latter indicating the month of “Yule”. The etymological pedigree of the word, however, remains uncertain, though numerous attempts have been made to find Indo-European cognates outside the Germanic group. The noun Yuletide is first attested from around 1475.

The word is attested in an explicitly pre-Christian context primarily in Old Norse. Among many others (the List of names of Odin contains around 180 different names), the long-bearded god Odin bears the names jólfaðr (Old Norse for ‘Yule father’) and jólnir (‘the Yule one’). In Ágrip af Nóregskonungasögum, written in the 12th century, it is explicitly stated that Christmas, iol, comes from a name of Odin, iolne.

2019 BCI Convention in New Orleans

Let’s be honest – the weather of Sweden in April can be a bit trying, to say the least. So Bo Johansson wasn’t sad to go to “The Big Easy” in Louisiana, to represent Källström Engineering in single excellence at the BCI during April 28-30 in New Orleans. The BCI had set up a great convention and we had a lot of interesting meetings and lots of visitors. We look forward to the next time in Nevada when we go to Las Vegas in April in 2020.
