Food is the highlight of the holidays for most people. Who doesn’t like a beautiful traditional holiday dinner? Someone is perhaps looking forward to a home-made roasted ham with mashed potatoes, someone can’t wait to bite into mom’s pie or grandmother’s special stuffing...
Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Are your eyes ever bigger than your stomach?

Damazhon are Spirits that typically flit about around those places we recognize as being sacred: springs, caves, vortices and the like. A Damazhoni (singular form, Damazhon is plural) is viewed by eyes of Spirit as a glowing light, often blue or yellow or green. Its size is that of an LED light bulb. They are of the type of Spirit that has no conscious volitional will of their own, but they will readily receive the will, or command, of a person who has the capability of transferring that intent to the Damazhoni. In general, they are one of the classes of Nature Spirits...
