The two-year old daughter of a colleague of mine died of leukemia this week. She was diagnosed with it a year ago, when she was as old as my own daughter is now. My thoughts went down the rabbit hole from there.
There are a lot of different feasts that are all celebrated around the middle of winter.
The Christian celebration of the birth of Christ, the celebration of the winter solstice, the celebration of a soft drink (that means you Coca Cola), and the Scandinavian celebration of dressing up in goat skins and going door to door called Joulupukki.
So, a large percentage of the world population is celebrating something. I wonder if it isn’t the largest celebration in the world – Although, China, India, and the Islamic countries are not along for the ride. Anyway, merry Christmas / winter solstice / Coca-Cola party / Joulupukki everyone!
