Samhain and S.A.D.

Why do we love a season that makes us feel like crud? Even The Bloggess has been going through a funk and she’s made of awesome and rainbow ninjas sprinkled with sarcasm. I’m always tempted to hibernate through this time of year, and wake up at Yule. So although I have a lot to write [Read More…]

Regarding the War on Halloween

I’ve been joking about writing a piece on “the War on Halloween” for a few weeks now, because from a Pagan perspective it’s such an absurd topic. Yet the more I joked the more it seemed a good idea.

I recently discovered that my grandmother’s best friend died after a long illness that had left her incapacitated. Mary and my grandma had been through everything under the sun together.

Wyrd Designs – Radical Protesters at Veteran Funerals…

I think in all the recent attention to politician Christine O’donnell, we’ve overlooked another equally important news story, one that hasn’t just appeared out of nowhere but that has been an on-going plague of religious fundamentalists protesting at the funerals of U.S. veterans for years.

Wyrd Designs – The Holy Tides – Winter Nights

Just as our pagan cousins celebrate the eight major sabbats or holidays that comprise the Wheel of the Year, for those of us in the Northern Tradition we too have somewhat similar key celebrations that we call holy tides. Some of these celebrations, like the one now upon us known as Winter Nights, are more [Read More…]
