So The Big Guy and I have developed an annual Christmas Eve tradition of going out for Chinese Buffet and a visit to the beach to stargaze. This year the our roommate The Amazing Toddy joined us so it was a true family affair!!
The night was fairly dark, as is fitting a few days before the New Moon, and Hecate came to mind as we sat within Her three realms, earth, sea, and sky. I spoke a simple prayer to Her thanking Her for the past year and its blessings and lessons and for those of the coming year.
We played our traditional beach game of 20 questions with a Holiday Song / Christmas Carrol twist. You had to be thinking of a Holiday Song and none of the yes or no questions could ask about the title of the song. Those made it a surprisingly difficult game!!
We drove home late that night happy and content.
