While any link between the Christians’ Easter and the Anglo-Saxon goddess, Ēostre – now, often called Ostara by Neo-Pagans – may well only exists in St. Bede’s mind and writings, it’s still one of my favorite Christian-originated/Christian-appropriated holidays. How can I not love a holiday centered upon Spring and Fertility? 😆
It’s 2021’s Saint Patrick’s Day (Lá Fhéile Pádraig) aka Amateur Drinkers’ Day, the day when everyone in the West has a bit o’ the Irish in them. Oh! and trust me, these 21 mná áille (beautiful women), each in a bit o’ green, would have no problems getting a bit o’ the Irish in them. 😉
Admittedly, Valentine’s Day has never been a holiday that I was particularly fond of. Yet, even I admit that, with the ‘Rona and all the resultant, Democrat-invoked issues surrounding the disease, this year’s Valentine’s Day is going to a wee bit different and less commercialized than most previous ones.
Yeah, here’s the thing – Christmas actually starts the Christmas Season, not ends it. The Twelve Days of Christmas start on Christmas and go to January 5th, which is Twelfth Night. So, it’s A-OK to continue to enjoy some Christmas cheer. 😉 And continuing to unwrap these sorts of presents is encouraged.
