. . . the old Celtic tales that is! December is chock full, once again, of great and varied stories related to gifts, in honor, of course of the Christmas Holiday Season. Once again Guide authors didn't disappoint with the wide range of topics that fall under the "Celtic Gifts" theme. This final issue of 2012 should go online next week, maybe midweek as it is almost finished.
. . . and in with the new!
One thing about this type of publication, you have to be already thinking of the next month or two, to line up themes and authors and stories. So, in January we are going to feature, as our theme, "New Beginnings." I suspect there will be stories of new kings and rulers, new countries formed out of old, and who knows what other juicy items will be thrown at us.
For February, I had a special request from a Celtic-based minister to feature "Celtic Ceremonies". While he is particularly interested in Celtic-styled weddings and funerals, I think this could be expanded to coronations, ordinations, initiations, any event that gathers people around in some type of tradition or ceremony to honor or advance a person or group of people. The Masons come to mind, as well as famous Celtic weddings or funerals. I am sure with a little thought, many twists will come about for the February theme.
Haven't yet thought about March as Thanksgiving turkey is calling my name. Gobble, gobble.
Happy Holidays of all shapes and sizes to you and yours. Thank you for your participation in the fun, informative, and exciting Celtic Guide.
