Just a little holiday cheer in advance of the coming winter solstice celebration! Actually, those who have my Astrotheology Calendar will know that we are already in the midst of several ancient winter-solstice festivities, including Brumalia, the Mysteries of Osiris and the Halcyon Days of Greece. In fact, December is chock-a-block full of celebrations largely revolving around the triumphal return of the sun after its long journey towards the darkness of winter.
Which reminds me of my infamous article…
“The Christmas Hoax: Jesus is NOT the “Reason for the Season”
Three years ago, this article went a bit viral and garnered tens of thousands of views. Also included in this link are two videos, one of which is a lengthy winter-solstice interview with “Infidel Guy” – check it out!
Most of all, as you will see from my Calendar, rather than belonging to one culture, religion or ethnicity, this celebration is universal, found in the month of December in cultures from Japan to North America!
In this regard, I truly believe that the fascinating knowledge of the astrotheology of the ancients would go a long way in uniting humanity beyond its divisive religious beliefs.
May you have a happy and sustained holiday season wherever you are!
