Mother Earth brings cycles, such as day and night, winter and summer. We live in Her cycles. And we love Her.
Our joy in the North is yule, or winter-solstice, when darkness gives way for the midnight sun to come (soon, we hope).
Of course yule is upside down south of Equator.
All sun-gods die and are resurrected. On Equator sun-god is killed by darkness every evening, only to be resurrected and kill darkness next morning. Understandably. This is how Mother Earth has it.
