My reason is to open up my mind to others who share the same openness. To show my naked maskless soul to part of the world helps me be more comfortable in living my life like that at all times.
I currently celebrate the true meaning and date of winter solstice, while denouncing everything to do with Christmas. I also understand how the energy of the universe will effect the personal soul as well as the surrounding energy and how to maneuver through it. My favorite resource for that is the Mayan calendar (the sacred tz'olkin) although any resource that includes the energy of the moon and comets with the universal energies will essentially say the same things. I understand the deities referred to in such texts are a personification to an emotion, an event or an especially powerful energy (like a star).
Pegan? I completely agree with the traditional ideas because they are actually honest. The Santa clause method of life pushes people deeper in teaching themselves through lies and disrespect, but respect is the most beautiful thing in life.
