Winter Solstice Celebration.

Winter Solstice Celebration.

Earl and I took a moment for ourselves this holiday season and celebrated the Winter Solstice with a feast. Winter is officially upon us and the days are at their shortest, though now they’ll start getting a little longer as each day goes by.

We took a moment to remember those that have passed before us and those that are still with us. We also thanked the Universe for all that has been bestowed upon us at this most joyful time and throughout the wheel of the year.

“Here I am on this night, Yule, Midwinter, the winter solstice, the nativity of the Sun, the time of the longest night. I am here to understand life, death, and rebirth, and to give reverence to those who have endured each.”

Happy Yule to all.
