Finally the season of mindless consumerism is closing. Christmas is now something that is in our face with pressure to buy something quickly or let the family down. Let’s not forget that the christian church hijacked the celebration from a very important festival 4 days before: the Solstice.
In the north the winter solstice marks the beginning of the new year, winter has peaked and spring is on it’s way.
In the south, the summer solstice is a marker to prepare for winter now. Make the most of swimming in the ocean, lakes and rivers. Be safe. Have a siesta at midday to avoid sunburn.
I’m not going to get into the hypocrisy of celebrating one day of the year. It’s just a trick shops use to make you buy things you don’t need. It is a good excuse to spend time with family. But why do you need an excuse. Celebrate life and family every day.
Love and peace to you all.
