IDEAS AND INFORMATION
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is a holiday tradition that was shared with me by my business associate, Tina Carey.

It seems in Venezuela, the belief is that the Spirit of Christmas (the angel of peace and kindness), comes to earth each year on December 21st and remains until January 6th. Their custom for this beginning is a wonderful one.

On the evening of December 21st (Winter Solstice), each member of the family creates a list of wishes:

7 wishes for the world
7 wishes for the family
7 wishes for themselves

They create two copies of this list -- one to keep next year (for their review). At the end of the evening, each family member takes their list of wishes and places it into their fire -- releasing the wishes to Spirit.
