Witches Want Winter Holiday TV Special

HINTON, W.V. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Animated Christmas TV specials are just one of the crosses witches have to bear – they want equal airtime too.

According to Jo Miller-Frost, a self-proclaimed witch in Hinton, West Virginia, the Wiccan holiday known as Winter Solstice gets less attention than Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa – even though it’s been around longer than all of them.

Frost and other witches believe it’s time the solstice had its own TV special similar to Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

Frost says the Winter Solstice – which is Dec. 21 – is the festival of the return of light, as days start to get longer again, and she figures a cartoon about Vikings burning a yule log or Germanic people putting candles on evergreen trees is appropriate.

Frost says witches like her will be celebrating the solstice by having friends and family over for dinner, turning on lights in every room and illuminating trees in every room.
