Well, we are nearly at the end of 2015, and almost into the Day where most of the Western World Stands Still!
But there are many, many celebrations, at this time of the year, coming from a whole range of Countries, Cultures, and Traditions. Many, but not all, are associated with light, and I love the idea that so many people can share a time of celebration, even though the names of that celebration might differ.
So here are a few seasonal greetings of various origins!!
Happy Diwvalli . Happy Niinamesi . Happy Bodhi Day . Happy Hanukkah . Happy Solstice . Happy Happy Milad un Nabi . Happy Pancha Ganapati . Happy Christmas . Happy St. Stephen's Day . Happy Hogmanay . Happy Zarathosht Diso . Happy Kwanzaa . Happy New Year . Happy Shogatsu . Happy Maidyarem Gahmbar . Happy Epiphany . Happy Makar Sankranti . Happy Lohri . Happy Seijin Shiki . Happy Tu B'Shevat .
And I hope that YOU have a Wonderful Festive Time, however, whenever, and with whomever you celebrate the turning year.
I’d also like to just take a minute to remind you about what Amaranth can do for you!
I am an Independent Civil Celebrant based in Derby, and working primarily in the surrounding area; Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire etc.
I offer a whole range of Celebratory services:
v Celebrations of Life (funerals)
v Ceremonies of Commitment (weddings, partnerships, renewal of vows & ceremonies of commitment)
v Other Rites of Passage (naming, coming of age, etc)
v Any other occasions that you might think of!!
I create uniquely personal ceremonies, based on your ideas, dreams and wishes, and look forward to the opportunity of meeting you and working with you in the coming year.
Enjoy, Take care, and I’ll see you in 2016!
