Celebrating Winter Solstice December 21, 2011
How do you greet the season?
Humans have celebrated this mid-point in the cycle of our Heavens and the return of longer days for centuries. With fertility rites, fire festivals, sacred rituals, offerings and prayers to their gods and goddesses, seasonal celebrations abound!Many cultures the world over perform solstice ceremonies. At their root -- an ancient fear that the failing light would never return unless humans intervened with anxious vigils or antic celebrations.
However you choose to celebrate, whether dancing around a bonfire or lighting a candle and enjoying a glass of wine, I say “yay” for more sunshine!Happy Winter Solstice to you!!
