Christmas takes the traditional role of the mid-winter festival in Western Europe, where we celebrate the past year and the birth of hope for the next. It is a time to love family, respect the past and adore the future. This holiday appears in several forms, including Yule and Christmas, but serves an important role in the passage of the year.
Those of us who believe in an organic society do not see days as equal. Each serves a role toward a purpose, just like each year of life does, working together to tell a story or solve a complex question. For this reason we have holidays that show us where we are in the process and give us moments of contemplation to see what we have learned, and where we want to go.
With that, I leave you to friends, family, feast and joy. Merry Christmas from all of us here at Amerika to all of you out there who can read, understand and act.
