Greetings gentle readers! Today is my birthday, a special marking of the day actually did not occur in every culture and in every time I have found through my research interestingly enough. Our current understanding of the day seems to have come from the ancient Roman culture as so much of our modern Western culture does.
In ancient Rome, on this day the birthday person would stand at their household altar and light a candle to their spirit/soul, which the Romans called after the Greek idea of the Daemon. The purpose of the ceremony was to speak with our Spirit to seek renewal and guidance. Then there would be cake. I think that this is a great custom and plan to follow it!
I am currently reflecting on everything the past year has given me, and must say that I feel so blessed. Thank you all so much for all the support that you have given me in buying and enjoying my novels. I couldn’t do this without you. Thank you.
Oh, if you want to buy one of my works, read it, and then write a short review, that would make an awesome present! They are on Amazon currently. Please go to my author page:
