Heathen Holiday Card of the Day! (12/11)

We’ve received some great submissions for our Heathen Holiday Cards, so let’s begin rolling them out!

We enjoy anything that makes you smile, laugh, or shoot dopamine missiles into your medulla oblongata.*)

(*I don’t really know how brains or chemicals work.)

Today’s card is brought to you by reader Ologies! I was obviously super-delighted to receive this one due to my admiration of one Sir Nicolas Cage:

You can buy the card here and see other designs by Ologies here.

    That is one creepy St. Nick. I love it!

    St. Nick headed home five days ago. Why you so slow America?

    I’m going to take this moment to shamelessly promote Sam Logan, a webcomic artist and all-around good guy. He has some excellent secular cards available for purchase over at Topatoco: http://www.topatoco.com/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=TO&Product_Code=SNF-LINKCARD&Category_Code=SNF

    This seems an appropriate time to share the Homestuck webcomic’s Nic Cage Song.

    i honestly think going with the historical truths about this time of the year throughout history are better. 

    there are so many, many religious traditions about the “dark of the year.” so many. from every time period, every culture, every continent. it’s a significant time of the year, and i can say that as an atheist. which is to say: damn, it’s hard to be in IL during the “all grey, all the time” season. 

    we have festivals of lights and candy and food and warmth during the cold times for a reason. *everyone* does. it’s fun to make up supernatural representations of that, because honestly, who looks good in wool and heavy cotton overclothes? like, no one. except the god beings, who can totally pull off life in an animal stall, or pine trees growing on your roof, or exploding astral being marking the significance of your birth, etc.

    it’s cold, dark and boring out there right now, if you live in the northern part of the globe.

    let’s have a party!
