Yesterday was the winter Solstice. And though I TRY to celebrate, though often just end up observing, the seasonal changes… For some reason I have never gotten the Winter Solstice right. The only times when it was a REAL celebration was when I studied with Wiccans. And although I tried to maintain a “relaxed” relationship with them…. It just has never worked. So…. I does my thing all solitary and shit.
Since I can never find a Yule log… I can never get anything together with my family who doesn’t say anything about my choices but doesn’t support them either… I decided this year to not really do anything big or even medium sized. I made some eggnog, got some fruitcake, lit my candles, and went outside to enjoy the change of seasons. Then I went back inside and went on about my business.
It was kinda perfect. And at the end of the day isn’t that all we can ask for?
