Today we were discussing bringing food tomorrow for a food day / end of the world party. I told everyone that I'd be bringing something (candy) because it was Yule. I got asked if I was pagan.

So, the answer is, not really. I'm more philosophical than anything else, I said. I like the pagan holidays because of their medieval-fantasy imagery and link with the natural cycles. And, they give me something to celebrate. It's nice to have a way to mark your progress through the year, and to have excuses to do things like see family, take time off of work, eat awesome food, and dress up in costumes.

The real truth is, I subscribe to the belief that every moment is holy. No moment is any more or less important than any other moment, at least from the point of view of the universe as a whole. So, celebrate the moments that are important to you, whatever those are.

This sums up my feelings as well. I am not Pagan but grew up in a culture with pagan roots. The ceremonies and ideals make sense to me on some level and are appealing.
