How is this possible? It is still reaching the 70's here on the Gulf Coast and I swear I have no idea how this year just flew by.
It is time to get out the crockpots for hearty meals. Time for movies, reading, and snuggling under a soft blanket. Time for twinkling lights, carols to which we know all the words, and the excitement of small children.
The time also approaches for the winter solstice, the shortest day and longest night of the year. In Wiccan and other religions, the winter solstice also heralds the rebirth of the sun, as from that day, the days begin to lengthen.
It is the time of Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chanukkah, Yule, and more. It is a time for all religions to celebrate; one no less important than another.
It is the time to send holiday greetings, to let those you love know that they are in your heart no matter how near or far.
December ends the year with a flurry of activity but, at the core, December is a month of celebration and a month of love.
