Yule[edit]

You have recently added Finnish and Estonian words as allegedly one of the etymological sources for Yule, when en effet the oldest notion, wherefrom all of its forms in other Germanic (and not only) languages stem, is the Old Norse jól (not in my opinion, but according to one of the most illustrious dictionaries in Scandinavia). Unless you provide an explication for the claims of Estonian-Finnish origin, when in fact they are borrowings, I intend to deprive the article of them, or, lest it diminishes in volume, to move them to the "Translations" section.

Furthermore, silently belittling (same edit) the Old Norse origin by sustituting "influenced by" with "cognate with" is reprehensible and not conducive to the amelioration of the article. Bogorm 21:11, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
