The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

It's the night of the 21st and 22nd, so technically they are both right, and both wrong! The solstices and equinoxes happen at night, at the merging of day to night. So, here in Australia, last night was the Spring Equinox.

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Hopefully there are no differences! It's hard to appreciate the equinox when we still are on daylight savings time. I work in the evening so I wake up relatively late, consequently I'm usually sleeping at sunrise and it's already dark by the time I close the shop, say 7:30 pm. The US we extended the DST by 15 days during the "W" administration. We still have DST until November 3rd! How ridiculous is that?

We have six months of bloody daylight savings time - grr! Alright for people who live in cities, but for we poor country-dwellers it's a trial and a torment!

Daylight saving is a trial and torment for us in the city too - you should see how that extra hour of sunlight has faded my curtains...
