Yule Sabbath

The Summer (or Winter depending on
where you live) Solstice is coming around
and that also means Christmas is
also here at last.
I don't know about other people,
but to me Christmas as a novelty
has worn off. It just seems like it
has been commercialised to the point where
its real meaning has become obscured.
Now I'm not religious, per se, but
even I am spiritual. Christmas just
doesn't seem like Christmas any more.
One of the reasons of celebrating the
Yule Sabbath is the renewal or death/slumber
of the earth (opposites for the N & S
Hemisphere's). Which I find is much better
then celebrating the birth of a prophet.
And though I don't believe in Christianity,
I recognise that the holiday started out
well meaningly.
So, instead of celebrating x-mas this year
try out something different with the Yule.
