A Time To Get Rid Of The Cobwebs

What is it about festivals that makes us clean and do stuff around the house that we have been putting off forever? Is it just an Indian thing, I wonder? Spring in the West is certainly not just before Christmas, so spring-cleaning is not associated with the festival. In India, however we clean our homes and sometimes repaint them too before a big festival. It’s certainly a time to get rid of the cobwebs.

A Time To Get Rid Of The Cobwebs

Christmas seems a good time to rid the house of the unnecessary things we have gathered through the year. It comes at the end of the year, and before the New Year. I guess it is also a good time to get rid of cobwebs of another sort – the ones that have gathered in our minds and hearts. The cobwebs of old habits, petty grudges and perhaps the pain of rejection and hurt real or imagined. I think it is a wonderful time to reflect, review and discard all the unnecessary ‘stuff’ we have been carrying around through the year.

I hope that amidst all the activity that surrounds the preparations for Christmas, I find some time to prepare for a brand start in the New Year.
