Dies Natalis of Sol Invictus

It's a tough time to be truly observant of the meaning of the season, even though these should be what Catullus called "the best of days." There's gaming, music and drinking and eating to excess! Evergreens are found almost everywhere and yule logs burn in homes that still have fireplaces. Candles symbolizing light and the quest for truth and knowledge are plentiful-even if many are now electric. Preparations for the day of gift giving create hustle and bustle in the shops. But we have lost sight of the true meaning of all these preparations. Soon we will all be observing the birthday of the unconquerable sun and honring the deity Saturn.
