Winter Solstice: The REAL 'Reason for the Season'

Hi there -

Just a little holiday cheer in advance of the coming winter solstice celebration! Actually, if you have my Astrotheology Calendar, you know that we are already in the midst of several ancient winter-solstice festivities, including Brumalia, the Mysteries of Osiris and the Halcyon Days of Greece. In fact, December is chock-a-block full of celebrations largely revolving around the triumphal return of the sun after its long journey towards the darkness of winter.

Which reminds me of my infamous article...

"The Christmas Hoax: Jesus is NOT the "Reason for the Season"

Three years ago, this article went a bit viral and garnered tens of thousands of views. Also included in this link are two videos, one of which is a lengthy winter-solstice interview with "Infidel Guy" - check it out!

Most of all, as you will see from my Calendar, rather than belonging to one culture, religion or ethnicity, this celebration is universal, found in the month of December in cultures from Japan to North America!

In this regard, I truly believe that the fascinating knowledge of the astrotheology of the ancients would go a long way in uniting humanity beyond its divisive religious beliefs.

May you have a happy and sustained holiday season wherever you are!

Here is a letter in the Abilene Reporter-News:

Just thought it would be appropriate to let you know that people are trying to spread the word and hopefully make a difference in this beautiful world.

I love your work Acharya S. I gave your calendar (and a few copies of "The Gospel") as gifts this year.
You are a true inspiration. I wish you a very happy holiday season.

Holy moley! That's quite a discussion Jeremy got going there - and I do appreciate hearing about it. Good for him getting that in there.

That blurb merits a hotlink:

Celebration of the sun

Thank for the kind words and kudos! Happy holidays to you as well.
