The warrior [of light] has lived each and every day of the year that has gone by, and even though he has lost some great battles, he has survived and here he is. This is a victory. This victory has cost many difficult moments, nights of doubt, endless days of waiting. Since ancient times, celebrating a triumph has been part of the ritual of life itself.
Commemorating is a rite of passage.
His companions look at the happiness of the Warrior of Light and think to themselves: “why does he do this? He could be beaten in his next combat. He may provoke the enemy’s fury.”
But the warrior knows the reason for his gesture. He gains strength from the best present that victory can offer: confidence.
The warrior celebrates the year that has come to an end so he can be stronger for tomorrow’s battles.
