Oh this is gonna be a very silly answer. I find it very funny looking back now, I hope you do too. When I was quite small, my family were Jehovah’s Witnesses. My big brothers remembered their Catholic beginnings, they remembered magical Christmases. My little brother and I did not, we’d never been Catholic yet. We used to get very sad that all of our friends had lovely Christmas or Hanukkah, and we did not. We’d pout. My big brothers tried their best to console us. Our best friends lived across theBlack Labrador Retriever In Socks Christmas Ornament Dog Christmas Tree Topper Dog Lover Gifts. Their dad was not home much, but he was a very stern man. He had quite the temper (when we grew up, we realized that he was always drunk, but when we were small he was just scary). He had a Doberman called Rex who we were all also terrified of. One year, I’m probably four or five, we’re sitting in my brothers’ room wistfully staring out the window at our friends playing with their new toys, wearing their Christmas sweaters, all that. The oldest two brothers, maybe trying to console us, convince us that we do not want Christmas at all. They tell us that Scary Dad is Santa Claus. They tell us that Rex the Doberman is actually Rudolph. Would we really want Rex landing on our roof? Would we really want Scary Dad judging whether we were naughty or nice, and sneaking into our house while we slept?

On the 15th it was time to sow the first grain in the fields, which was celebrated by another celebration of Consus and Ceres. TheBlack Labrador Retriever In Socks Christmas Ornament Dog Christmas Tree Topper Dog Lover Gifts and statue of Consus was stored underground during most of the year but taken up on this day to oversee the sowing. When the sowing was done it was time for a feast of abundance to celebrate the closing of the circle of time. The autumn slaughter was ripe and tender, the summer harvest was secured. It was time to make sure that time didn’t stop. Between December 17–December 21- 23 depending on when the natural winter solstice appeared the celebration of Saturn(and his wife Ops) went on in an official feast called Saturnalia, with a public banquet, masters serving their slaves, private gift-givings, etc. In the Christian calender this is a period without celebrations, but its importance is marked by the namedays. In the old tradition of namedays it is only old testament celebrities like Abraham, Isak, Moses, Nathaniel, Jonathan, Adam and Eve having their namedays in those days. It’s also the traditional days for street decorations, carol-singing and preparation of the Christmas banquet. At least in East-Germany, Sweden, Poland and the Baltics.

I’ve never been particularly a ‘Christmassy’ person but now, as I’m getting older, I find myself becoming aBlack Labrador Retriever In Socks Christmas Ornament Dog Christmas Tree Topper Dog Lover Gifts nostalgic, lol. Below is a post I wrote about my nicest Christmasses in the 60’s and 70’s. My first Christmas memories were about age 3-4. I was so excited by the prospect of Santa’s arrival, I was bouncing off the walls. My mum had to sleep in the same room for the night to keep me from waking up everyone else. She had a radio by the bedside and on it there came ‘reports’ every hour of how Santa’s sleigh had been spotting flying over various parts of the world. Eventually I wore myself out and fell asleep. I was convinced the next day I had heard hoofs on the roof in the small hours…
