Thanksgiving

turkey

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it speaks to the best of what we can be. It’s certainly about food and family, but it’s also about coming together despite our differences. Every Thanksgiving I eat a pound of turkey, hug my wife, call my Dad, and watch about ten hours of football, but I also stop to remember what it means to be truly thankful for the blessings in my life, and to reflect on the things that bring us together instead of drive us apart.

A Hellenic-Style Ritual

I will sing of stately Aphrodite, gold-crowned and beautiful, whose dominion spans from the heart of Cyprus to the hearts of all men! I call upon loud-roaring and reveling Dionysos, primeval, two-natured, thrice-born, Bacchic lord, savage, ineffable, secretive, two-horned and two-shaped!

Yule has long been one of my favorite Pagan high holy days. There’s a festive spirit in the air, and though most people don’t know it, most of them are celebrating right along with us (even if it’s a few days later).
