The fifth night of Yule is sacred to community. If you have a Pagan group you gather with, you may want to organize a potluck, wassail, or other such get together and (even better) make it open to the public. (Community is not just your Pagan group.)
Hail, ye Givers! a guest is come;
say! where shall he sit within?
Much pressed is he who fain on the hearth
would seek for warmth and weal.
If, however, you start your 12 Yule nights on the twentieth every year (like we do), the fifth night of Yule always falls on the 24th of December. Most Pagans I know still observe the customs of Christmas Eve with their extended families and may not be available for such a get-together.
However, depending on where you live, you may find some kind of liberal/interdenominational community celebration going on, similar to those ideas mentioned…
