|In the flurry of the season before Yule, it is a good time to do a welcoming spell for your hearth and home. Begin by cleaning a room you wish to use to entertain in the near future. Once done, sweep round it thrice in a clockwise fashion while chanting:
In this room where friends will meet, happy thoughts each heart complete.
When finished, sprinkle salt water in every corner, proceeding clockwise while chanting:
In this room let peaceful chords strike the tone of every word.
Bring in a small candle. Light the wick and carry the candle around in a clockwise direction, saying:
With this flame I warm the hearth, where friendship reigns while peace imparts.
Blow out the candle but keep it in the room. Whenever you have guests over to your home, you can relight it to rekindle the flame of fellowship.
