HackThisSite.org News: Happy Holidays!

[Edit: Christmas was good this year]

On this 'Tyr day', after the Nordic god Tyr, you don't need to:

  • Believe in Yule, the Scandinavian fertility god, to enjoy the tradition of Yuletide carols and greetings

  • Be a Wiccan to enjoy the tradition of wreaths or decking the halls with holly

  • Be a Druid to enjoy the tradition of hoping for a kiss under the mistletoe

  • Believe in the god Saturn to enjoy the tradition of decorating a Saturnalia tree in your home

  • Believe in Thor, Odin, or Saint Nicholas to enjoy the tradition of a cloaked visitor bringing gifts at night

  • Believe in Sleipnir, Odin's 8-legged horse, to enjoy the tradition of listening for the sound of hooves on your roof top

  • Believe in Mithras to enjoy the tradition of celebrating the sun's rebirth on December 25th

  • Believe in Jesus Christ to enjoy the tradition of renaming this ancient holiday-with portions predating Christianity-to Christ's Mass


  • All you need to enjoy these winter festivities is to have a secular Happy Holidays!
