Significance of the “Holi”days
What does the word HOLIDAY really refer to?
According to the merriam-webster dictionary, it literally means “Holy Day”. The word comes from Middle English, originally from Old English hāligdæg, from hālig holy + dæg day. It’s first known use is before the 12th century.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the holidays occur during the darkest time of the year, when the days are shortest and hours of sunlight are diminishing each day. With less light outside, people traditionally create wholeness through more light inside, by putting up lights on the Christmas tree, lighting the menorah, lighting ghee lamps for Dipavali, etc. We also send each other greetings of peace and holiday cheer for the New Year to spread that light and spirit of the season to our extended families and friends. Often many people make a renewed resolution to spread peace and goodwill in the world.
In addition to the generous spirit of giving presents, this time of year also serves to remind us of the holy, the light and wholeness within each of us—hallmarks of enlightenment. The inner light of consciousness can be systematically developed so that every day can be a holi-day, lived from the blissful state of inner peace. Being established in our own inner peace, freedom, and light is the perfect foundation from which to start out the New Year.
Wishing you peaceful holidays celebrating the light of enlightenment around the world. Please also enjoy this video, May Peace on Earth be Powerful.
