The Winter Solstice arrives this, Sunday the 22nd. I love and old-fashion Solstice celebration. With strong cider, even stronger ale and fearing table groaning with food.
I imagine Winter Solstice celebrations a time for prayer and gratitude. A time of reflection as the year turns toward growing daylight and anticipation of spring. Solemn processions of fiery torches held high against the dark night sky. And holy people offering prayers and burning incense.
