Dani --

It already is separate, actually... "Yule" is the night of the Winter Solstice -- a few days before Christmas (Unless you live in the Southern Hemisphere, in which case, Yule is in June). The precise moment of the solstice will be at 7:42 am, Eastern Daylight (& Mudcat) Time, this year. (2:42 am, GMT)

Personally, I don't mind sharing... after all, most Christians continue to use the Pagan names for the days of the week, and months of the year. If we can share 364 days with no problem, why not share the 365th?
