Happy New Year Again

There are a lot of New Year days. Us Celto-Pagans just finished our season that began at Samhain. Imbolc is before us, the rising light, but just before that (1/26/09) we’ll have the Chinese Year of the Ox crankin’ up. Persians celebrate new year’s day on Spring Equinox, as did the Pagan Romans, until calendrical fashions – and Divine Julius – changed the turnover date to 1 January.
So here’s a health to all on the calends of January. May the God of Doors, Double-Faced Warder, Janus of the Gates, guide our step on the lintel of the season, and health, wealth and wisdom be ours in every year.
