  • In terms of calendar, I'm traditionalist. Santa will visit on Dec 24th, but Mother's Nacht and Yule will be when they are. If that means the holidays spread out over 2 weeks, it happens. More cookies so nobody is going to complain around here.

  • I guess I am. I'm not urban at all, but it's undeniable that even if I were to move off the grid, I'd still have Tuesday. I wouldn't be able to escape, even by force of will and concerted effort, the effects of industrialization in my culture. :-)

  • I suppose we all are to some extent, I mean we are discussing religion online. However, I try to be as in touch with the natural world as I can. I celebrate astrolgical events on the days they happen, as a rule. I live "in town" too, so that influences my practice, making me more urban.

  • Honestly, i try to be more of a traditionalist. I like doing everything "on time". What's more, i like being very formal in my approach. I have, can and do get flexible when i must, for whatever reason. There have even been times when i could not celebrate whatever Esbat or Sabbat was happening so instead just lit a candle and took a moment to remember and give thanks. Yep. that's how flexible i CAN be. ...but i prefer not to be. lol
