Being Pagan we celebrate Yule which falls on the Winter Solstice on December 21st. It is a time much like Thanksgiving to me in that it is about family and sharing. It is not the big commercialized mess of Christmas because you don’t go out and buy stuff and spend all kinds of money that you don’t have. You make presents for each other. It’s not the price of the object or even if you completely need it or not. It’s the time and love that went into it. Maybe it’s a batch of your favorite cookies, a pie, pot holders, bath salts or a drawing to hang on your wall or refrigerator. They mean so much more because someone took their time to “make” it for you instead of just buying something that you probably really don’t want or need or that the kids will have destroyed by the end of the day.
Just think about it, if more people celebrated this way, no more people going into debt, no more re-gifting, no more “so-n-so will be buying me something so I have to buy them something.” Best of all, NO MORE Black Friday!!! People can stay home and be with their families, instead of camping out all week and then trampling or being trampled by the masses and adults acting like spoiled rotten children fighting over marked-down over-priced toys and such.
Which one sounds better to you? Think about it, December 21st all about family and love or December 25th all about money, debt, and giving a little man/elf in a red suit credit for everything that YOU work hard for…
Blessed Be and Happy Yule
