AND more under way
Holidays - Celebrations - Feasts
Humankind has held ceremonies, feasts and celebration from the earliest
tribal times. Such events kept the tribal communal spirit alive and well.
These events were held for special occasions of all kinds: to acknowledge
the change of seasons; to honour and remember those who had passed
through the veil; to hour the various life transition moments for the
tribe (community's) members, and many other occasions.

Not only did these events bring the community together, they also helped
the continuity of past and present so that everyone knew who they were
-their roots- their changes and growth and  the connection with
those no longer physically present; and many others.

We too, have feasts and celebrations to do these things. This page
presents endearing stories of some of them (and the collection is growing).
