December 1st! Wow, how did that happen??! And it is very mild outside, here in Central New York, pouring down rain. Still waiting for that first measurable snow. This is a pretty busy month for most people, for many reasons and holidays. I am not going to engage the discussion about the "reason for the season". Enough is written (and complained about) by many. Suffice to say, that the Wiccan Way is to respect all paths. Celebrate and be happy and healthy this holiday season, whatever your holiday and beliefs are.
I love making lists. I make lists of lists to make. Yesterday I spent a long while making lists for this month. Many things to do and think about. I do not "get crazy" about the holidays anymore, though. I enjoy each day. Because the importance of each day is not lost on me. Living with gratitude, revering the natural world around me and doing what I can to honor and live my beliefs.
Hanukkah begins at sundown tonight, so to my Jewish friends (and you know who your are!) may this Festival of Lights be happy, may your candles burn strong, and may your latkes never burn.
