Subject: RE: BS: How do u celebrate midwinter godlessly?
A few days ago I went to a solstice party given by one of my friends. We were promised a secret solstice ritual at the appropriate time. The hostess handed out oranges and ordered us to peel them. Then we were commanded to break up the peel, assign each of our faults to a little piece of it, and throw the pieces into the fire.
Somehow, that wasn't particularly exciting, although the orange was good.
After that about half the guests began to sing old-fashioned religious Christmas carols without any help from me. A good time was had by all.
Then I went to a contradance.
