Should we, as Pagans, be concerned about Secular Holidays?

Sunday, November 20, 2011
In my personal experience the more holidays one has the better they feel. I personally like to cook and so any excuse I have to cook good food (and eat it also) I sieze it with both hands. But for me this doesn't apply to the holidays of other religions.

There are other reasons to celebrate as many holidays as possible. Some of these are family and friends, networking and a chance to recenter. All of these can be as equally important. So as we come up to Thanksgiving take some time for yourself, don't let the over-commercilization of our society drag you down and make you depressed. It isn't the gifts that should count but rather the thought and the power of family.

Also take some time to spend with your kids only, take them for a walk (head to the mall if it is to cold) or sit down by candlelight and talk about the year past. Remember that family is the most important thing we have in our spiritual, physical and emotional lives.

As always I am interested in your thoughts and reflections on this topic, so comment below.

Blessed Be!
