#AtoZChallenge: Yavanna, Yuletide

Y (1)

Yavanna Kementári is one of the great Valar Queens. She is the eldest sister of Vana and married to Aulë. According to elven lore she considered second only in might to Varda. Her powers are connected with growth and life. According to other lore it is believed she created the first kelvar and olvar (fauna and flora) in Middle-Earth. Her most known accomplishments were the making of the trees, Telperion and Laurelin.

Yuletide is a holiday-period/festival that men celebrated and the hobbits adopted during the early years of the Third Age. It is a six-day festival that they continued to celebrate even after they settled in the Shire. It fell between December 29th and January 2nd. Our yuletide would be New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. 🙂

Look forward to your comments. 🙂
