I love my Mom. Yesterday she sent me (and her sister, and my sister) this “press release”, to inform us of this important development in her religious tradition**:
Jan Parcel, press secretary for the California Local-Wight Pagan Society, read this announcement from the High Priestess:
As I have previously announced that New Year’s Day, among allies of local wights of California, is properly marked by the first good soaking rain after the Autumn Equinox:
- I, Jan, high priestess of the CLWPS, declare the following three things:
- I have now been granted gnosis on what constitutes the first day of Spring. It is the first day of the year when someone, reading in the sun for 10 minutes, with hair long-enough to cover her neck, gets a burnt neck.
- Today, Mar 3, is the first day of spring for 2015.
- Spring is still required to produce rain by this definition.
That is all.
