Personally, at this time of year, I like to roll back the clock to that time before Christmas when dark and light meant something more than decor. To the time when the seasonal wheel turns and we embrace the darkness and the coming of the light at Winter Solstice. Before electricity, people who were connected to the earth, whispered stories in the dark time; stories of death and rebirth, of hungry ghosts, and nightmare creatures, of divine intervention, and justice. Read on to understand how we arrived in our current state of commercial oblivion and why we need to frighten up.
