'Yuletime' for 'Yuletide'

Yuletide is a time of year. 800+ghits:

My Christmas pages have a lil bit of Yuletime cheer for all ages! netring?action=info&ring=christmascheer

Yuletime is coming and it’s getting cold, Pagans are preparing…
As spirits grow strong, Yuletime is coming, it will not be long.

We are still hoping that it will be available as a Yuletime stocking filler …
So we may even see a Yuletime release, wouldn’t that be a nice present?

Yuletime Chocolate Pie. 2 egg yolks; 1/3 cup cornstarch; 1/4 teaspoon salt;
1-3/4 cups milk; 1 cup Hershey’s Syrup; 1 teaspoon vanilla extract …

If that egg nog get a little too rich and cloying after the first few sips, here’s a yuletime drink that’ll take the stripes off your candy canes.

St. David’s Church is absolutely the perfect venue for this magical yuletime treasure.

Re: 'Yuletime' for 'Yuletide'

I think you’re being a bit harsh here. “Yule-time” and “yule time” are attested in quite a few works of literature, and there’s indeed nothing strange about them. From the hyphenated form to the one-word compound it is just a small step.
