We have a couple of important spiritual observations
This time of the season has many spiritual observations. Three important ones among many are Chanukah, Yule, and Christmas.
Chanukah is the Jewish eight-day, wintertime “festival of lights,” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting and special prayers. It’s celebrated from December 13th to the 20th.
The Yule is celebrated by Pagan and Wiccan cultures on the Winter solstice and is celebrated this year on December 21st. This celebration focuses on rebirth and renewal, as the sun makes its way back to the earth.
Christmas is an annual festival on December 25th celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. This religious and cultural celebration is shared among billions of people around the world.
That’s our news segment for this episode. In our next episode we’ll find out even more about about the people and events in our spiritual world.
You can hear about these spiritual events in the episode Vast Native American Network / Spiritual Traveler Gilles Asselin / We are All Connected on Apple Podcasts, on Google Play Music, or on the Spiritual Fizz website.
