Upcoming solstice....
    #1144101 - 12/15/02 07:56 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

Just a thought for those that aren't really into christmas but like the family/friend aspect.....

We do something called a giveaway where everybody brings something special to them. We lay out or givaway in a circle and dance around it to the rhythm of a drum. When the drum stops you stop in your dancing and the present before you is what you recieve. It's a nice alternative to the old christmas regime and the mystery adds to the excitment.....

It's a celibration of the suns return.......

I hope this give some folks an alternative to going out and spending a bunch of cash for something that means nothing.....

Happy solstice...... :laugh:

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

I was going to do a giveaway for the Shroomery but too many things got in the way. I won't let that happen next year. I celebrate the soltice too. When is the moment this year in Universal Time?

I don't know about universal time at least in ways I can communicate right now,  :ooo: but I do believe that the planetary reference to time would be about 4:14 if you are in the high mountains of the turtles back (or 5:14 PST)........

There is kind of a catch to the whole giveaway thing that is reflected in a few aboriginal american traditions but I would bet that you could explain that better than I.......
