Out of Darkness is all about this coming Friday, the Winter Solstice. Many of the customs of the holiday season are from the pagan winter solstice celebrations - the yule log on the hearth and decorating with evergreens both were central to events which marked the darkest day of the year.

Also from H&G this week:
