    Each year I encounter something that most Pagans know, but the general public is oddly oblivious to. People who casually complain about the dark and don’t know about the shortest day of the year, or even when it is. I know this because that is when I mention that soon enough the days will be getting longer they blankly stare at me and say, “Really? When?” It becomes very hard not to do a face palm each time I encounter this, and its frequent. So I feel compelled to talk about the Real reason for the season.

    “…this time of year seems to cause a sort of crisis of sorts in our culture.

On the other hand, advice from spiritual leaders and philosophers urges us to reject consumerism and find the “real” spirit of the season.”
