I popped on theReindeer Ornament and used my spotlight to illuminate the area. It was fenced in with eight-foot cinderblock walls. The only opening was toward me so whoever was in there was going to have to come to me.

It seems like the festivities started on December 1 with aReindeer Ornament of Piety towards all the Gods of life, death and fertility. A kind of celebration to honour the dead and an initial rite in waiting for life to return. A beginning of an ‘Advent’ if you like… On December 3 the women held a Bona dea, a strictly female private feast connected to the godesses Bona dea and Fauna/Maia, an ancient fertility God and female version of Faunus. Both gods connected to foreseeing, prophetic abilities and generousity. Which explains why this was followed by a male and public celebration of Faunus on December 5, when the streets was filled by horned men giving away presents and food. Which reminds us of what still happens in southern Germany on the same day with the horned Krampus and some of the traditons of a goat man delivering Christmas presents in Northern Europe. The day after the Christian saint of sailors and gifts has been given a day, you might recognize him as Santa Claus, or St Nicolaus. Nowadays he comes to us at Christmas night, but in old days December 6 was the day for presents.

When I was younger, maybe about nine or ten, we were heading out to my grandparents’ house out in theReindeer Ornament. They live on this long road that practically is their driveway, since their house is the only one on the road. Anyway, this year it was a very snowy and windy Christmas Eve. There were many snow drifts on the roads and snow blew all over the vehicle as we drove up to their house. About halfway across their personal street, my dad thought it would be funny to drive faster, even in the wind and snow! So naturally, we’re all already laughing at his recklessness. My mom eventually said, “Okay, I think you should slow down a bit now.” He didn’t, even though he should have. Had he, though, it wouldn’t have been as fun. You see, just as she was about to say it again, we hit a giant snow drift and spun into the ditch! All I remember was my brothers and I laughing and screaming, “Let’s do it again!” Luckily, we were in the truck, so we weren’t stuck in the ditch, and we still made it to their house on time for Christmas Eve dinner.
