Ever wonder why we celebrate so often on the “Eve” of a holiday? It’s because the ancients began their days at night and not in the morning. Yes, the beginning of the day started at night and ended in the day. There are some interesting ideas there if you want to delve further. Suffice it to say, though, that everything begins in darkness. The seed sprouts in the darkness of the Earth and only afterward does it climb its way toward the light.
Relish the Eve. And have a wonderful Christmas Eve.
