Advent IV or Yule?

You have a choice today. You can celebrate the 4th Sunday of Advent or you can celebrate the Winter Solstice, which pagans like to call Yule.

Being a Christian, I celebrated Advent IV and reflected on the Virgin Mary, who some people think is "an ordinary Jewish girl," or maybe a dead Roman Catholic. I'd say she wasn't that ordinary and that she intercedes for us in heaven. That would make her catholic but not dead. Others, like Mr. Chick, think she's a Babylonian demon. That's stupid as well as blasphemous.

But that's just me. Some, perhaps many of you, would rather celebrate Yule today and dance around fires while praying to the Horned God.

Go right ahead, but don't say you weren't warned when you wake up inside a Wicker Man. And it's on fire.

God bless,

You guys have so MANY feasts that I wonder if the church would be willing to sponsor a group discount to the local gym? DLC must remain in shape.

This month if you were being festive AND inclusive, you'd have 4 advent feasts, a couple of misc. saint's day feasts, 8 days of hannuka feasting and crazy nights, the three days of the solstice orgy, festivus, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, the six nights of Kwanzaa voodoo, New Year's Rocking Eve (party with DLC, Pretty Jenny and Brig), New Year's Day Feast and on and on.
