Friday!! Well, sorta

well, 15 more mins and I will be calling it a weekend.... I got here early so I could leave a little early and head to HEB for last minute items, then to PetSmart for some holdover crix. We are out and the delivery schedule is askew due to Thanksgiving so will be MONDAY...Hecate wont wait that long! I got dirty looks today when I gave her the last seven this morning...I don't DARE walk in this evening with NONE.

A friend on Nness got published in the winter issue of Stampington, pages 103 & 105. Can't wait for the magazine to hit the newsstands!!

As for the "Holiday" drill... Spirit works her usual 6am-2pm Thurs & we'll head to twin's in Hutto for TDay meal, then home, then I will catch up house chores, art swaps, etc on Friday whilst I wait for Spirit...Saturday we travel to the Homeland (Bandera, TX, y'all) to see the parental units, Sunday we REST!!

Thanksgiving to Yule...and why

Well, Thanksgiving is almost here! Of course, I feel like it has sorta already passed since we Pagans have already celebrated our THREE harvest festivals (Lughnasadh, Mabon & Samhain). But Thanksgiving gives me the chance to spend a PAID day off to spend with my brother & his family. And Saturday we'll go see my folks. That's the bad thing about being pagan...none of my holy days are paid days off. Sigh. Friday will be a day off, too, but unpaid. Bigger sigh.

Speaking of holy days, I have requested Dec 22nd off at work using our Outlook calendar system. So far, no one seems put out by me asking off the Friday before Christmas. You see, we pagans celebrate Yule on December 21st... but the celebration runs from sunset 12/21 until sunrise the 22nd. We celebrate the longest night of the year with friends, staying awake to greet the return of the sun. I will be tired!!
Pagans have as much right to claim this holiday as Christians. Perhaps even more so, as the Christians…
