Yuletide was a pre-Christian holiday is celebrated by the Vikings. Many of the Yuletide tradition were eventually incorporated into Christmas such as the Yule log, Holly, mistletoe. However the festival was more the feast day all about celebrating. Eventually this holiday was reintroduced in the Republic of Scandinavia in 2045. The reintroduction of this festival was part of the rediscovery and popularity of paganism which occurred in the 2050s. The 21st century version of this festival was a family holiday very similar to Christmas. However during Yuletide many countries also celebrated pagan figures such as Odin. The reason Yuletide caught on so quickly was because many of the traditions were already celebrating in the Scandinavian region. By 2065 Yuletide was extremely popular in most of Europe however many Christians were extremely concerned about is widespread introduction. Many extremist Christians believe this festival was honoring Satan and included child sacrifice. This led to the second Satanic panic which killed 45 people in Lucifer city in 2069. Yuletide remained extremely popular holiday in  northern Europe until the Ice Age led to the evacuation of the Republic of Scandinavia.
