SEASON'S GREETINGS! ~ SOLD


"No one really knows when Christ was born.
It was settled on December 25th
for mythological,
not historical, reasons." 
Joseph Campbell

HAPPY YULE, WINTER SOLSTICE WISHES,
MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

I've been hearing a lot about "Keeping Christ in Christmas" this year, ...However, we also must remember that people were celebrating the YULE around the winter solstice way before Christ. Many traditions (tree, giving presents, lights, foods, songs, etc. were taken from Pagan traditions.) Just sayin' ... even if Christ isn't in your Christmas, it's not going to happen by people telling you to put him there. As long as your spirit is in the right place, personally, I think it's all good!

"And now today, whether observing Yule or Christmas or one of the other seasonal festivals, all are variations on the same theme. The good cheer, jolly music, sprigs of mistletoe, wreaths of holly, brightly wrapped packages at the foot of trees decorated with shiny ornaments and colored lights common to the season are culturally inflected expressions of five thousand years of human tradition."
~ Joseph Campbell

WISHING YOU HEALTH, HAPPINESS AND PROSPERITY
DURING THIS FESTIVE SEASON AND IN THE YEAR TO COME!
