Whether you celebrate Kwaanza, Solstice, Christmas, Chanukah, or New Year, or whatever...
We want to wish you all peace, blessing, enlightenment, joy, and prosperity this holiday season. May those of you who have lost loved ones be comforted. May those of you that are ill find healing. May those who are in health maintain it. And may we all know love and security throughout the year.
Here's a little ritual my mom and dad do on New Years. They got this from our mom's mom. Sometime New Year's Eve they put bread, a piece of wood, and a coin into a bag and put it outside their door. The bread is in hope of always having sustenance. The wood is for warmth through the long winter. The coin is in hope of prosperity. The first time they enter the house after the New Year begins they together bring the bag over the threshold.
Here's hoping 2006 is filled with bounty, warmth, and prosperity for everyone!
