I was tempted to write something about the history of this holiday, through all of its various forms and traditions. I suppose that isn’t necessary. Anyone who is interested can do that research, and a piece like that always appears to be a shot at someone’s strongly held beliefs. Instead, let’s focus on the aspect of rebirth. That’s what is being celebrated on a day like this, irrespective of religious tradition; the cycle of physical and/or spiritual rebirth.
It is also a special time for me, as every plant in the world attempts to kill me with its pollen. Thanks, guys.
Whatever you call it, and whatever you celebrate, I hope for everyone to have a great day.
