Happy Winter Solstice, and Merry Yule!

Happy Winter Solstice to all you solstice lovers out there, and a Merry Yule to those pagans (and non-pagans) continuing the traditions... or creating new ones! This year I'm celebrating with 12 days of Yule, starting with the Winter Solstice. Each night I celebrate something I (or we, if people want to celebrate with me, they certainly can) am thankful for. Tonight, we are thankful for who we are-- the good, the bad, and the quirky. We are thankful for what it took to get to where we are now, to be who we are in this moment, at the end of a year. And we ask for blessings for a fruitful year ahead. I'll be lighting a candle for the first night of Yule and staying up to watch the sun rise.

I'll be posting each night to talk more about what I'm thankful for, and what I hope to see in the new year.  I hope that everyone's winter celebrations are everything they hoped to be. Celebrate! It is certainly a time to be thankful! Eat good food, be with the people you love, and have fun!

Festival of Light and Dark

Last night I attended the Festival of Light and Dark over at Mills.

Here's what I had to say for each:

Links and Pics

We pretty much demolished this cake.

I'm preparing for finals week and finishing up a slew of school related projects, so I haven't been able to  update the good ol' blog recently. My apologies!  To tide you over, here are some links that I've found around the intarwebs while trying to ignore homework. Enjoy!
