I realize I’m several hours too late for this, but I wanted to share it anyway. My poem from last year, “Twas the Night of the Solstice.” This year there were more of us together, but it passed just as tranquilly. Later this evening, Becca and I are going to have hot chocolate (though it feel like it’s warm enough for us to want cold chocolate) and do a little bit of fire (unless it keeps raining). We’re going to celebrate what is currently recognized as the end of the year before she and her bf make the trip up to see his folks for Christmas.
So Blessed Yule/Solstice, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukka, Happy Kwanza, or whatever holiday you celebrate. May you know joy and light and good times with those you love. May you forget the petty controversies that divide us so often in our daily lives.
