I have to admit that I just love Christmas. In my own very pagan way. I love Yule, Saturnalia, Solstice, and all manner of dark and wild winter festivities. I've always felt that, historically, winter holidays had a very dark edge to them. Sort of a "Well, it's freezing cold and we may not make it to spring, but most of us aren't dead yet, so let's party!" kind of thing., Well, imagine my delight when I discovered that the humble Pointsettia could well have been used in Mayan blood sacrifice! Enjoy this little "Eve's Folly" holiday tribute.
