It's A Religious Thing

I love being barefoot anywhere, anytime, but I can't always. On certain days of the year I make it a point to go without shoes no matter where I have to go or what I have to do. I try to make sure I don't have to do much on these holy days, but sometimes I don't have a choice.

What are these days and why do I have to be barefoot? I am a Pagan Witch. I celebrate the 8 Sabbats as represented in the Wheel of the Year. These days generally celebrate the changing of the seasons, and acknowledges ancient pagan practices. I usually go barefoot on Samhain and Beltane without question, and do for the others if I feel like it. I also go barefoot on my Dedication anniversary, which is actually tomorrow (sept 18th).

Other than for religios purposs, I love having bare feet. I never wear socks and shoes inside my home, and always make people take off their shoes as well. My mom said that when until I started kindergarden I she couldn't keep socks and shoes on me. I would always pull them of before running around outside. I guess I've always loved the feel of my feet against the earth, soaking up her energy.
