We’ve covered Diwali, Hanukkah, and Christmas in our holiday food and story features.

I’m talking about the Pagan celebration of the Winter Solstice

“Christmas” means something slightly different to everyone. For some, it’s a time of community traditions and religious celebration. For others, it’s a family time, where loved ones gather around their own traditions. For others still, like myself, we really don’t have much in the way of tradition, or we did at one point, but as
