02/02/2002 Entry: "If the Pagan Sees It's Shadow..."
|Six more weeks of winter, says Punxsutawney Phil, in a particularly patriotic message (and under careful watch by National Guard, who were stoked that they didn't get airport duty again, Dude!) Phil always gets the spotlight, but this is America, where any rodent prognosticator can make their prediction. Is this a great country or what?|
Another holiday that is observed today is Candlemas, the traditional Pagan "Welcome to Spring." The ancient name is "Imbolc", which if I remember correctly is because this is the time of year when Pagans make their final run to CostCo before Spring. ("An' ye shael stock up on supplys, as it is of greyter valyue to perchase im bulc.") Or something like that.
God bless those pagans.
