Celebrations, Winter Solstice, and Chrismahannakwanzaka

The Winter Solstice has begun. Depending on hemisphere, time zone, personal internal time clock, age, and/or relationship with reality, it may have ended for you. Me? I’m in the here and now and we are just beginning!

Tomorrow is the shortest day and longest night of the year, a time long celebrated. Pagan gods have received sacrifices, the return of the light and the Sun god’s reappearance have been feted.  Hanukah, Chinese New Year, Diwali, Ramadan, Kwanzaa, Santa Lucia Day, Epiphany, Koliady are all celebrated near the Winter Solstice.

Regardless your reasons for celebrating the season, it is wonderful time of the year and a great excuse for good food, good fun, family, and friends.

I’m off to celebrate all of them. I could just be ‘off’. But any excuse for a margarita right? So while my family celebrates the Pagan Present-Giving Season and all the other culturally enjoyed holidays, let me wish you are very

Merry Christmahannakwanzaka!

Ummmm…I’m still waiting for my epiphany.
