So your family celebrates the return of the Sun and/or the re-birth of the Divine within all of us? Wonderful! After all that’s what the winter solstice/Ka-Rast Mass is all about. That’s why it’s a period of meditation/fasting/prayer/goal setting for many of us. Some top it off with a feast. Nice! Looking for songs to set the mood?

P.S.- Some of us don’t use the name “Christmas” to describe our Dec.20-25 celebrations. Instead we come up with names that resonate with us. That’s perfectly fine.
