Holidays

I love this time of year! Between Halloween and the New Year we all have a chance to reflect, renew and rebuild. There is something about the energy in the air as people prepare Thanksgiving dinners, light Hanukah candles and start Christmas shopping. It’s a time for friends and family and connecting to what is important in life. And it is a time to pay our respects to all of the people and events that have led us to this point in our lives.

It is also a time for traditions – keeping old ones and creating new ones. Holiday traditions don’t have to condemn us to the ghosts of the past (with apologies to Dickens.) They are living, fluid concepts that can grow as we do, encompassing all of our spiritual progress. We can pay respectful homage to mom’s turkey dinner and grandma’s manger scene while we add our own personal touches to the season, creating new patterns that will become tradition for our children and their children.

My daughter became interested in ancient Celtic and Wiccan traditions, which led us to incorporate a Yule Log into our holiday celebrations, while my son has taken over the job of handing out presents on Christmas morning. And we joyfully share our holidays with in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins, girlfriends, girlfriend’s families, an ex-husband, his wife and all of her family as well. It is a time for generosity of spirit and a respect for all of mankind.
