Holy Day of Artemis and Apollo (Greek). Artemis is the goddess of the Hunt, protector of Maidens and goddess of childbirth. Apollo is the god of music, medicine, poetry, dance and intellectual inquiry. If you can find an activity that combines all of these, today would be a good day to do it.
Tonight is the Eve of Saint Nicholas, in the Medieval traditions. Children put out carrots, hay and straw for the saint’s horse, which are mysteriously replaced with presents during the night.
