Thursdays With Thorrie
You can't have Christmas with out Christ? We can't have Thursday with out Thor or Hanukkah with out Han either. OK, that last one may not be right. Historians and astronomers now place Christ's birth as possibly mid-June. Most of our Christmas traditions are simply co-opted winter solstice rituals that made it easier to convert celebrants to Christianity. If one really wants to get back to the meaning and message of Christmas, just fully and with humility, follow the words and deeds of Christ all year 'round. On Christmas day; spend less, give more and love all.
