The last of my Theme Months ends with December being the month of light. It may seem counterintuitive to think of December being the month of light upon first blush. However after considering it you may come to understand why I see it that way.
–The Winter Solstice arrives signifying the end of the darkest days of the year and bringing longer daylight hours every day after the Solstice.
–December is also the month we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ (The Light of the World.)
Two reasons apply for why December is considered The Month of Light:
I look forward to the Winter Solstice every year because daylight increases by the minute after the Solstice. It’s actually one of my two favorite days of the year. The other is when daylight savings time goes into effect.
There are those who believe Christ was NOT born in December but possibly in October. And the reason we celebrate his birth in December is so that it coordinates with The Winter Solstice. The beginning of light and Christ being the giver of light.
As I promised in October here’s how these three themed months connect. Now bear with me as I make the connection:
–If you recall, October was seeing through the thin veil that separates the physical world from the ethereal one.
—November was the Grateful Month.
–December is the Month of Light.
So here’s how I see them tying together:
DEATH and DYING should NOT be mourned. That event in one’s time should be celebrated. We should be GRATEFUL for having those people in our lives. For it’s a time of returning home, returning to the LIGHT from whence we came.
See how I made the connection there?
Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;
We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying. For there truly is no end.

Chris, I just want you to know that I’m enjoying your book, Taking Off a Coat! Couldn’t have come at a better time as our family “lost” two loved ones in the past week. How perfect is God’s timing?
Blessings, my friend!
