Getting stressed out by the holidays? Try celebrating Discardia, starting on December 21.
Discardia is a new holiday.Read more on the Discardia web site.
It takes place in the time between the Solstices & Equinoxes and their following new moons. Sometimes it's short and sometimes it's long.
Discardia is celebrated by getting rid of stuff and ideas you no longer need. It's about letting go, abdicating from obligation and guilt, being true to the self you are now. Discardia is the time to get rid of things that no longer add value to your life, shed bad habits, let go of emotional baggage and generally lighten your load.
