Season’s Greetings 2016

These were the pics for our holiday cards this year.  It’s interesting to see how we both took pics of the same pose simultaneously and came up with very different results!

Aeon says:  It’s not a surprise to me that so many cultures have set their calendars so that the turning of the year comes during the long dark. It seems a moment of change, when things might seem to weigh down on us. As an astronomer, I usually celebrate the dark: it’s during these months that the stars shine most brightly.

It has been a tumultuous year for many of us… and some of us are uncertain at what lies ahead. But no matter what you celebrate or how you celebrate.  Join with me in taking a some time to sit back with the ones that we are close to, no matter how much distance on this globe separates us. Make amends with those we have wandered away from.

Sing to one another, laugh with one another, love one another.

This moment of peace, this moment of friendship, of love will carry us through the next year.

Blue says: Christmas is always a special time of year for me.  For my family, it’s always been the day that we all try and get together.  We’ve even had days where half of us have been living overseas and the other half have traveled so we could celebrate together.  When we can’t be together, we’re still thinking of each other, and for me, the season is all about love and peace and reflection on things accomplished over the past year.

In SL, looking back at some of the posts and the memories they invoke, reminding myself of the times Aeon and I have spent together building, playing, dancing, just the two of us, or with our wonderful group of friends, makes me very happy indeed.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the posts we’ve done for you throughout the year.  And from my heart, a very merry Christmas to you and your families, and may the New Year bring you love and happiness and the fulfillment of all your dreams!
