I have decided today to give you a little Christmas treat. It is, of course, a story. It’s a story I love to tell at this time of year.
My version of the story is called The Great White Cat. I believe it’s Nordic in origin, but like so many other tales…it’s traveled wide and far.
I’m also fascinated by this story because of its reference to a very ancient tradition. The ancients felt that the year was a circle. And if the year is a circle it out to have 360 days—such as the circle has 360 degrees. Well we all know that’s not quite true, and they knew that too.
