Just Saying...

I don't need to believe in Yule, the Scandinavian fertility god, to enjoy the tradition of Yuletide logs and carols. I don't need to be Wiccan to enjoy the traditions of wreaths or decorating my house with holly and ivy. I don't have to be a Druid to enjoy kissing someone under the mistletoe. I don't need to believe in the Roman god Saturn to enjoy decorating a tree in my home. I don't need to believe in Thor, Odin, or St. Nicholas to enjoy the tradition of a visitor bring gifts in the night. I don't need to believe in Mithras to celebrate the sun's rebirth in December.

therefore, i don't need to be a christian to celebrate this ancient holiday that has been adopted as "christ's mass."

now don't get me started on easter/ostara...
