Our Winter Solstice celebration...
we light our sun candle, we sing songs and read solstice stories
We make ornaments that resemble the sun
we eat apples
we wait patiently for the longest night of the year
we make our Yule log , this year with holly and cinnamon.
and after we burn it the kids go to bed ... Gary and me while we wait until morning, I light 12 candles with the fire from our log that represent the 12 days that the log is supposed to burn continuously and we meditate and do a recap of our year... tomorrow before sunrise we will drive up to a high spot and wait for sunrise. We will greet the newborn sun with songs and dancing and the kids will receive their first present of the season.
wishing you all a beautiful celebration!
and don't forget that
