‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar plums danc’d in their heads = Clement Clarke Moore
Clement Clarke Moore was on a shopping trip when he saw an old Dutch Handyman giving some gifts out. In 1823, he originated what he believed our Santa Claus looked like if we could see him. Magick, love,, hope, joy, Santa has become a symbol for years of these magickal wonderful truths we long for, hope for, yes we need in our lives. No matter what the time of year though, we can, return to our inner child, much like our faith in the symbol of Santa Claus, the symbol of faith. See, my loves, my friends, this season, no matter what “religion” ( one notices that I most often don’t use the word religion, even Jesus the Master wasn’t too fond of “religion”)Matt 5:17,) No matter what faith system we believe in, the key is faith, belief, hope, peace. We have to keep fighting for these qualities, these hopes, no matter what ever else we accomplish only with these basic principles can we find happiness. The true way to achieve these is to renew our faith every day. To find the magick of the world, the sun alone hanging in the sky Father sol shining down on us today this Christmas eve, this day to celebrate the birth of the most wonderous magick of all, may we all be blessed.
Animal totems: Lamb: another symbol of faith, of peace, of gentleness. No matter what faith system we love, we serve, the sacrifice of the lambs, even in the sheep’s own sacrifice of the manager, we can see that through gentleness, kindness, giving can we find the joy we seek. Lamb’s coat becomes so wooly, full, that unless we do take from it, even the lamb will suffer under the weight of her coat. Sister lamb reminds us if we keep our heart so full of love, people around us will feel its warmth, as we share, we receive back warmth, love, fullness of faith
