7 More Days Until Christmas!!!!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now let’s rewind our clocks and take a peek at what our ancestors are doing today.

It just so happens that we have some historical information concerning our present day habit of gift giving during this time of year.

That’s right…today in Rome was the great festival of Saturn which was called Saturnalia!

Saturnalia would go on for 7 whole days. It was a huge celebration that had a little bit of everything!

It is also an historical fact that in Rome— today was the first official and formal day that people could start handing out gifts to others.

Wishing everyone a Pagan Christmas!

See you tomorrow!

Pagan Holiday for November 12th, 2009

 

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

Thursday is the day of  Thunor or Thor—God of thunder & agriculture

This day represents Jupiter and the Element of Fire.

It is a good day to deal with matters or magical workings concerning desires, harvests, oaths, treaties, legal matters, gambling, speculating, and political power.

 

 

November 12th is the day of Isis

 

This is the day in the Egyptian Calendar that the Goddess Isis began her search for her husbands body, Osiris.

Isis, my favorite Goddess, seems to be very self made and maintained. While some look at her struggles as loyalty, and or burdens, I see them as just one more reason as to why she is a Goddess and more importantly, a woman.

Isis is proof that there is strength in all women. She proves that no matter what odds are stacked against us, we can endure and we most certainly can survive. Even if the will of the Gods are against us…no one and nothing decides our destiny and fate except …us.

 

So today we honor Isis and what is the beginning of one of her hardest journeys.

Ancient Rome–Nones of November

England–Guy Fawkes (See story below)


1605 –A group of disillusioned Catholics conspired to set off 36 barrels of gunpowder in an attempt to detonate the House of Parliament’s. Their goal was to kill King James I but alas, they failed.

One of the Conspirators became concerned that innocent people would be killed, so off he rushed to tell the King. But when the cellar was flooded by the King’s men…another conspirator was caught–Guy Fawkes.

Even though after checking the Gunpowder and discovering it was so old that it would have harmed nothing anyway, the attempt to kill the King spooked everyone so much that for 4 centuries after, that same cellar was searched on the day before Parliament was to open.

Afterwards, England remembered Guy Fawkes on that day by burning bonfires all over England.

Now, what does this have to do with Pagans since the assassination was an attempt by Catholics?

On the day that the fires burn for Guy Fawkes, Pagans had been burning their bonfires to banish or rid of the spirits of the previous year. They created Effigies or images out of woven straw and or grain. These were lit and the smoke was used to cleanse the spirits away.

It’s believed that Pagans, in order to protect themselves and their rituals, adapted, blended, and merged under the veil of Guy Fawkes and the celebrations done for him.

In other words, since everyone else was burning Effigies and bonfires anyway for him…then who would notice a bunch of Pagans doing what they have always done?

Something to think about.
