Hanh! I'm not a big fan of Christmas. First, it's not my spiritual way. There's way too much abuse associated with missionary crap, to my People & every other. Sort of, "support our way or we'll kill you." - & then they talk about a loving god. Riiight. Second, my many times grandfathers were hanged at "Mankato" the day after Xmas in 1862, & then the state of MN 'banned' Ndns from it - proudly. Says, "the celebration of love is over, let's get back to bigotry & hanging Ndns". Third, of recent years, "The Gimme Season" starts before the people have thanked The Great Holy for the year's bounty - thus actually saying, "Grateful? Whazzat?!? Just gimme more."
I love Yule; the celebration of the light returning, the turning of the wheel of the year & its reminder that the cold, grey, damp, sometimes snowy / icy days that draaag on are not going to last. Spring & the growing times will come. That Yule is a season of hope.
But the hypocrisy of 'Christmas' leaves me cold & out in the (spiritual) cold. And let us not forget those miserable torturing out-of-tune bells by the red kettles.. The aural version of Chinese water torture. I feel no guilt in passing them by. I often put in ear plugs before going in so my ears & my sensitivities are not assaulted by that racket. I hear 30% more than most people, so I'm more sensitive to 'racket'.
Having said all that - in re Thanksgiving & The Feast - to us Traditional Ndns, every day is a day to give thanks. The universe responds well to gratitude.
And if you are going to give gifts, you would do well to consider giving gifts that improve &/or protect & preserve health - zappers. That's a gift that helps heal the Sacred Hoop, because as your zappers heal you & yours, your purchase helps us continue doing what we do. O'kichiyapi - helping each other. Pilamiyaye! / Thank you! Wishing you great good happy health & success!
