Free Candle Spells | Did You Know? – December 2012

* Did you know that the Mayan calendar is set to end on December 21, 2012? Notice I said calendar, not world?

I am sure that you have heard the fervor surrounding this date and the rumor that it is the end of the world. Ironically, I have just come back from a trip to Central America and I toured two ancient Mayan temple sites and climbed one of the two pyramids. Our tour guide was very informative and has Mayan blood in his father’s side of his heritage. He is very proud of the accomplishments of the Mayans such as the development of the concept of Zero in mathematics. He pointed out to me the medias misrepresentation of the Mayan calendar, many times publishing the Aztec calendar mislabeled as Mayan.

The correct Mayan calendar

The Aztec Calendar


The difference? The Aztec calendar has a man/demons face in the center with the tongue hanging out. The Mayan calendar is a man kneeling and hunched over with a large bag or pack on his back. 19 squares encircle him, indicating the nineteen “sets” of time or calendars in their beliefs. Our tour guide said that when we finish the 19th one on December 21, 2012, we will start over with the first one, completing a circle. No worries, he said. The world will go on.

* Some of the Catholic Saints having Feasts Days in December are:

* Saint Lucy, Martyr – December 13th – Patron Saint for those with Eye Afflictions
For those who have issues with their eyesight, this Saint is best to receive honor and a candle from you on their feast day. Other things to surround their image or photos might be a few flowers and maybe a donation to a charity that helps those less fortunate to have good eye care and glasses.

* Saints Adam and Eve – December 24th – the first Man and Woman
This one was a surprise for me and I came across it in one of my well-worn Catholic booklets.

* The Holy Innocents – December 28th – the first children killed by King Herod
Matthew 2:1-18 tells this story: Herod was “greatly troubled” when astrologers from the east came asking the whereabouts of “the newborn king of the Jews,” whose star they had seen. They were told that the Jewish Scriptures named Bethlehem as the place where the Messiah would be born. Herod cunningly told them to report back to him so that he could also “do him homage.” They found Jesus, offered him their gifts and, warned by an angel, avoided Herod on their way home. Jesus escaped to Egypt. Herod became furious and ordered the massacre of all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity two years old and under.

 * The Native Americans call the Full Moon in December the Full Cold Nights Moon (Full Cold Moon) as this is when the nights are long and cold. It is sometimes known as the Moon Before Yule. The Moon at this time creates a high arc when moving across the sky on December nights as the Moon is above the horizon for many long hours in the winter.
