Into darkness we plunge as winter draws itself over us. Soon we reach the apex of a dying year in a single night as it lengthens past all other nights—the Solstice. In our deepest hush we are given pause to reflect.
Cedar, Frankincense, & Pine.
In an earth’s quiet night, how shall we comfort and renew each others’ hearts?
Yule or the Winter Solstice is celebrated on December 21st. Rituals include lighting candles, exchanging handmade items or found gifts from the natural world, quiet reflection upon the past year’s events, and ushering back the sun with song and feasting.
