Happy Winter Solstice!
"The wheel of the year has turned once more, and the nights have grown longer and colder.
Tonight, the darkness begins to retreat, and light begins its return once again. As the wheel continues to spin, the sun returns to us once more." --
LONGEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR
The ancients knew that the winter solstice was the longest night of the year -- and that meant that the sun was beginning its long journey back towards earth. It was a time of celebration, and for rejoicing in the knowledge that soon, the warm days of spring would return, and the dormant earth would come back to life.
