Devotional/Prayer: Honoring the Housewights
Make a plate of food for the housewights. Light five flames and speak the following:
On this, the fifth night of Yule, we pay honor to you, kin of our home, those beings who share this space with us, good neighbors and friends,
We honor you.
We have spent many nights under this roof together.
You have heard our joys and triumphs.
You have witnessed our sorrows and pains.
You have heard laughter and anger, and all of our prayers.
You, dear house-kin, are family. (offer plate of food)
Tonight, we honor you for the important place you hold in the home
with these gifts of our table.
We share freely that you may know the plenty of our home,
in body as well as spirit.
House-kin, accept our offerings.
