XLVIII A.S.

The beginning of the calendar year asserts regeneration, resolutions, retrospection and forethought.

The New Year in western culture is attuned to the Gregorian Calendar of "2013", declared by a papal bull in February of "1582" A.D. {Anno Domini}, which has since become fully secularized as C.E. {"Common Era"}, with which to deal with the common populace, generalized for business, politics, legalities, secular interactions, etc. Likewise, it seems a simpler blanket numerage with which to operate to gain desires. According to this chronological tradition, all of history can be encapsulated in the first four letters of the alphabet, as in BC/AD.

The Anniversary of The Church of Satan is on Walpurgisnacht, declaring The Age of Fire, and we are now in Year XLVIII Anno Satanas, with Year One featured so potently in the film "Rosemary's Baby" with exclamations of "The Year is One! Hail Adrian! Hail Satan!"

Some consider Halloween the religious New Year {aligned with the harvest, festival of the dead, new beginning}. Aligned to the seasons, with pre-christian revels punctuating throughout. Since the dreaded number "13" is featured this instance, with all mysteries attributed thereunto, it seems appropriate to declare it a Hallow's Year, in appreciation of the dark aesthetics.

Perhaps there is yet another personal 'year' to consider - the date of one's own birthday, the Highest Holiday.

The new year brings the celebration of past efforts materialized, lessons learned, with responsible carousing, and the anticipation of coming pleasures, and treasures. The infant reborn; by Janus' key, another doorway opens, a canvas to paint your creation as you see fit. Whichever you choose ascribe to in the correct sense, may it be filled with prosperity, the fulfillment of Lust, accomplishments, and ever increasing Power on all levels of being! Joy to the flesh forever! Life everlasting! World Without end! ∞

Hail Satan!

In Nomine Satanas,
Warlock Draconis Blackthorne
The Haunted Noctuary, Devil Gate
1st January, XLVIII A.S.
