Do you celebrate a winter holiday other than xmas?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else here celebrate something other than xmas? I do. For me its Sol Invictus. Sol Invictus is a celebration of being unconquered by superstition and consistent in the pursuit and sharing of knowledge.

The cult of Sol existed within Rome since its early days as a republic, and Invictus was an epithet used for Jupiter, Mars, and Apollo (among others). The festival celebrated these Gods and may have also been used to celebrate the winter solstice.


So who else celebrates something other than xmas?

I can't say that me or my family celebrate anything else other than Christmas. I do know there are other things that many do celebrate before we even get to Christmas but it was never anything I was brought up with or felt that I wanted to celebrate.
