Way Back When
The origin story of Christmas goes way back before Jesus.
Dec 21 is the shortest day of the year.
The longest night.
And it’s pretty cold.
If you were an old school farmer, you couldn’t grow anything during winter.
So winter represented harsh times.
Halloween is when summer turns into fall.
When leaves turn brown and fall off the trees.
A metaphorical shift, from life into death.
When the barrier between the living and the dead is kind of blurred.
Go Away Ghost!
When spirits walk the Earth and people give them candy to keep them away.
But winter IS death.
The last gasp of the light.
When the cold night is at its longest.
At it strongest.
But the next day represents a kind of re-birth.
The day after the shortest day of the year has to be LONGER.
So, counter-intuitively, the days START to become longer and longer AFTER the shortest day of the year.
After the winter solstice.
What is one way to represent this?
The birth of the sun.
Then there is another critical point.
When the days become LONGER than the night.
Day = Night
After the spring equinox.
When it’s time to start planting again.
The metaphors for this are metaphors for fertility.
Rabbits, eggs, brightly colored garments.
The same things associated with Easter.
Here’s another cool idea.
When is Easter celebrated?
The first Sunday after the first full moon of spring.
What does the full moon represent?
The brightest night.
The day when metaphorically, the light has overtaken the darkness.
And the night is weakest.
When the “sun” has risen from the dead.
And the “sun” or the light reigns supreme.
All of the energy, at least back in the day, came FROM the sun.
The sun is the source of light and life.
The darkness is devoid of light, of warmth, of light.
Light is good.
Night, or the absence of light, is evil.
Night is counter to light, to warmth, to life.
This is the metaphorical battle that has been raging since the dawn of time.
Light vs. Dark.
Good vs. Evil.
Even in our brains, this battle rages.
Things that enhance and improve our lives.
Things that make us go backwards.
This battle WILL RAGE as long as you live.
Do not give in to the darkness.
Become a champion of the light.
Of all that is righteous and good.
Stop shuffling through life and hoping for the best like most people.
Become an agent of righteousness.
A demon killer.
