The autumn, the falling leaves, the shops! Everything starts to focus on Christmas again. Preparing for that festive season that has become so very inflated in our current society.
Every individual will have their own take on what Christmas means, what it is about, how they feel toward the mid-winter celebrations. It is rooted in the returning of fire, of heat, of the sun reaching that darkest distance and then our wobbly Earth tipping slowly back toward that bright ball in the sky. And that is worth celebration.
So whatever it might mean to you, by lighting candles we share in the celebration of fire and of light. ... and they are, after all, made of wax, which is something I love all year round.
