Happy Holidays To Readers of About Freelance Writing & The Rest Of The World

by Anne Wayman

candle light for writersIt’s absolutley amazing how many winter celebrations there are. WikiPedia lists many, but there are even more.

As near as I can tell they are all based on light, and probably the turning of the year, a welcoming of the sun and longer days after a dark season of shorter days. Of course most of them also have deep spiritual meanings. But I wanted to look at what we have in common, at what joins us.

I’ve listed a few here:


Winter Solstice

Bodhi Day

Chinese New Year

Inti Raymi

Pancha Ganapati


Eid ul-Adha



However you celebrate, or don’t, the very best to each one of you and my sincere gratitude that you are there.
