Dearest of folky funsters, at this chilly, wintry time of autumn, time becomes wickedly scarce, and expenses boom – sadly this difficult year we've not managed to find a spot to share our usual live Yule Show, and a week meeting Sinter Klaas in Holland leaves us short of time to spin an all-new retelling for this Winter Solstice… (AWW!)

Yet what I can I give thee, gi-i-ive... FOUR STORIES!

A full Yule pack of exclusive Tales Of Britain from Christmases past, reposted for your PDF pleasure...

MARI-LWYD: A tale all about the foolishness of showing off to keep up Yuletide traditions. This is Brother Bernard and Sister Sal, about to step on stage...

THE LAST YULE: St. Augustine is sent to Canterbury to turn the boozy Saxons onto the funky Jesus thing – during the Yule festival...

THE APPLE TREE MAN: An old Christmassy yarn which could come from anywhere apples really matter. As a Shropshire Lad, though, I know where I'd set it...

AVALON: The Death of Arthur... Well, there's snow in it.

Warmest saturnalia wishes to every single last one of you who has bought and enjoyed our collection of British Tales, at this time when the country is most in need of reminding of its legendary roots. Still time to buy a copy as a present for story-lovers in your life!

Brother Bernard and all the Mithras pelicans wish you all the loveliest of Yules.
