I didn't have addresses for all of you, so if you didn't get a card... here's a couple virtual ones.
And if you want to be on the list for next year, shoot me an email.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season! *smooch*
One holiday that not a lot of us celebrate, I've been learning a bit about. The Solstice. Here's what one woman an my crafty board had to say about how she celebrates Solstice...
Yule is the beginning of the next turn of the wheel for me and so my ritual incorporates this feeling of beginning anew. I spend time meditating beforehand on what new things I want to bring into my life through education or experience and envision ways to do this.To honor the fact that the night of the solstice is the longest night of the year, I enjoy sitting in my house with all aritificial light sources extinguished while I do my meditation. When I am ready to proceed to the next step of actually writing down what my "resolutions" are, I turn on a soft light. This year I plan on using my tree.Then I make an amulet that contains my written down plans along with other special pieces that make it personal to me.
In case you're not sure "who" celebrates Yule and the Solstice, it's mainly Wiccans or Pagans. It's very interesting to read of all the symbols and rituals that began as Pagan and then were adopted by the church as their own.
So whatever YOU celebrate! Happy Holidays to you all. *smooch*
