    Much of today's reconstructed paganism owes more to the writings of
    Christians and ex-Christians than to any genuine tradition.

    And I say:

    This is true. If the monks hadn't copied out the evil things that the
    heathens practiced, we'd have no clue what they did, since so few
    survived.

    Bright Solstice Blessings to all who partake of the rites of the
    Longest Night.

    You too Maxine. We are going to a open ritual this evening and a
    wonderful pot luck afterwards.

    Don't forget that the Elder Edda, as we have it, was written down by a
    (at least nominal) Christian. With added explanation; for example,
    that the Aesir were descendants of refugees from Troy (? if my memory
    is correct.)

    We had a wonderful evening. Had a great ritual and great pot luck. So
    much different foods. I hope that everyone has wonderful and happy
    holidays.

    (*Oops - I was wrong! <EG!>)

    Shull bit! It's in the bones. In the very genetic core of the human beast.
    It is nature, it is truth. It just plain *is*! So errrmmm, *ner*.

    It ended before 1 a.m. for me.

    We had an ale from the Copper Dragon (local) brewery that was very nice
    indeed. We also burned some dead plant matter and exhaled its spirits to set
    them free, with a request they watch over their sistren and brethren for us
    in the coming months.

    You HOPE it's a wonderful pot luck. Reading some pot luck accounts in this
    newsgroup, I'm now wary of any such events. (I hope yours *is* wonderful,
    though.)

    And for Deity-of-choice's sake, TRIM YOUR POSTS, WOMAN!

    It was a wonderful pot luck and we filled the tummies and enjoyed
    ourselves immensely.
