Feeling the Energy of the Season

Festivals of light and joy are in abundance. At RainbowsNGold, our cultured circle continues to celebrate everything that we are. This month, several festivals take place. There’s Yalda, a Persian holiday where friends and family recongise ‘the longest night’ or Winter Solstice. Then there’s Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights recongising the miracles that took place at this time so many centuries ago. Following that is Christmas, Kwanza and the Gregorian New Year. So, as you slip into your RNG swag, ready to gather with friends you might ask, “Wait, so…can we celebrate all of them?” The answer is, of course you can!

Gotta have holiday cookies!!

When you fill your life with cultured friends it’s always a win-win. You get to go to all the parties and events. But even if you and your circle don’t celebrate any of these you can still take the time to learn. Part of the Cloud 99.9 experience is one of enlightenment. Educating yourself on what is going on around you and finding the good in it is one of the best ways to experience pure bliss. As you continue to collect coordinates this season and exchange RNG t-shirts as gifts, think about adding a little card or info to your presents. Tell one of your friends about a holiday that they may not know about. Have you ever attended one night of Hanukkah? Now is the time to do it. Slip into your Cloud 99.9 tshirt and head on over to the library or look up the public Hanuakkah celebrations in your town. Or maybe take a friend to see The Nutcracker! It’s a global holiday tradition. It’s also a bold step to be one with your community and those around you and a beautiful way to extend love and appreciation by joining in ceremonies and groups around you.

One of the world’s greatest holiday traditions is The Nutcracker Ballet

Like to sing? Then Yalda is for you. This evening is filled with poetry and thoughtful prose. Slide into your Tea Party shirt and find a community that celebrates the Winter Solstice in the Persian style. Learn about the history of the night and all of its significance. In most Persian communities, tea is a part of everyday life. So bring an extra tea party shirt and share the inclusive message of RNG with your new friends. Again, it’s a bold way to bring together communities. Be that one to start the bonds of friendship that can last as long as these decades old traditions.
