Today I explore the question of what it is about Christmas season that makes it feel special – so special that we collectively get into a festive mood regardless of our beliefs, and so special that it was honoured even at the front during WW I and II.

In today’s noisy world we can basically buy anything any time or meet up with loved whenever we want, so why is Christmas season still such a special moment for gatherings?
Why is there so much preparation going on weeks, even months before the actual Christmas Day?
What is about Christmas season that makes it so special, that even though we might not be of Christian belief, we can still sense this magic in the air and want to celebrate?
To explore these questions, I dive into:
- How Christmas is just one expression of a festival that’s been celebrated by humans for millennia
- The energy of Winter Solstice and how it is connected to the menstrual and the moon cycle
- My favourite tradition for this time of year
In the end, I believe, it’s about remembering that the spark of the Divine light (whatever “Divine” means to you) is right here inside of you and will guide you on this journey called life.
