Beating November — 2 Comments

  1. Halloween was the start of the ancient year not the 1st of January, or the 21st of December for that matter. Samhain and it’s focus on the light, albeit artificial light brought people through that last bit of the year when Vit D was causing a profound drop in mood. Indeed for the very first time this year I’ve noticed the celebrations for Christmas in central Europe begin soon after Halloween, and are in full swing a month out from the 25th of Dec. Frankly I was mistaken in my thinking about Aldi and Lidi doing a social good by having stock in so far out. When it’s merely a stocking expediency for them.

  2. The shifting forward of Christmas does leave January, including Blue Monday, as a very grey time, for lots of people. I always enjoy the lengthening days.
