There are many traditions that surround this time of year. Some traditions are new, some are ancient but at their core, they all mean well. Our beautiful home world goes through these wonderful cycles. In their simplest form they are about birth, growth, maturity and decay. The cycle of light and darkness. Our DNA at it’s primal form, fears darkness because it represented unknowns. Our celebrations together are about light and laughter. So regardless of your personal beliefs, have faith in the spirit of creation that spins our planet, fuels the stars and some how in all the chaos gives us hope.
