Merry Chistmas for me to you
« on: December 15, 2011, 02:11:28 PM »

Be it Hanukkah, Kwanza, Soya Luna, Yule or Christmas, people through the ages have marked the change in the land with celebrations old and new.
When the harvest or the catch has been stored away to see them through and brought out as needed while the land sleeps.
Families and friends come together and through fellowship, goodwill, and sharing of their bounty this has become to be a season of peace and joy.
For me, thatís what this time of the year is about. Sharing what we can with those less fortunate. Reuniting the bonds of family and friends. Looking forward to a new year, a new season with hope for better days.
With many people it became common to wish their friends well with references to fertility and good health.
And that practise has continued in many forms, including the standard Merry Christmas.

So where ever you may be and upon what ever path you wonder. No matter how you may conceive the divine or the significance of this time of year.

May the road you walk be easy, may your Gods smile upon you and bless you, may you be strong in spirit, mind, and body, and may all the joy this season hold be yours.
So mote it be.

Thanks for the thoughts. Honest with all the marketing and hype of their Christmas and no other pagans around me at this time of the year I often find myself thinking "here comes that fat old **bleeper** and his bag full of crap again."....but I do appreciate the thought and have a great Yule (may I also say Eid Mubarrak for any of our Muslim brethren out there.

This one's got something in it for everyone I reckon:

Thanks dm. To you and yours too.  I suppose those grandbabies are making it all exciting and surprise filled for you(as well as costly).

A really lovely American Christian friend sent this to me on Facebook. We cried into our respective wines as we listened to it and sentimentally agreed that really there is no reason why the whole world can't take advantage of this season of good will to actually show some to one another, apart from cussedness on all sides.
