I will celebrate these holy days with joy
delighted that what is commemorated
took place in history as also in my life


“But they’re of pagan origin,” some say,
“have been renamed from a pagan start
simply to draw the masses into the fold”
pretending thus their worth reduced


I who celebrate have also pagan origin
have been reclaimed from pagan start
I have been reborn, am pagan no longer
should their pretense my own worth reduce


Yes, I will celebrate my holy days with joy
exuberant that I who once was dead
by these days' deeds will inherit Life!
