Did you know? Have you heard?
There is a little bit of Pagan in everyone -
Things we do and say and celebrate,
Superstition, Moon, Stars and Sun!
You don't need to take my word,
Your own study will tell you
How many beloved customs
Have a Pagan origin. It's true!
Christmas coincides with Yuletide,
The Winter Solstice. Christmas trees
And evergreens were honored on this day -
The longest night of the year, you see.
Groundhog Day on February second
Falls on Imbolc, when sheep give birth,
Which is the middle of the winter season,
Celebrated with fire and mirth!
The Day of Hearts in February,
Known as Valentine's Day
Comes from Lupercalia
Celebrated in the Roman way.
Easter is from the Spring Equinox.
With bunnies and eggs galore,
Fertility is celebrated on this day,
According to Ostara lore.
May-day then comes rolling 'round,
Or Beltane as it's known.
Wash your face in the morning dew,
Your freckles left upon the ground!
Halloween, or All Hallow's Eve,
Is a harvest festival day,
The final crops are coming in
And winter's on its way.
So you see, many customs
And things we celebrate
Are Pagan in their origins,
A fact you can't debate.
