25 December: Birth of Attis,
the Divine Shepherd of the White Constellation (the Milky Way) ... Attis, identified with Adonis, Tammuz, Mithras, Eros, Sabazius, and by countless other names, is a Solar deity, child of the Great Mother, born at the winter solstice ... sacrificed and resurrected anew with every springtime. To the Hellenes, this is the Haloa, wine-feast of Dionysos, honoring also the Mother as Demeter/Semele. Romans celebrate the Saturnalia week, festivals connected in antiquity with the golden age of Rhea and Kronos.
