For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere this is the time of the shortest daylight hours and the longest night.
Celebrations to mark this special time have taken place throughout history and occurred in many civilizations.
During the winter months I sometimes feel like the bear, wanting to snooze away the dark hours. I always enjoy the Winter Solstice and look forward to the lengthening of daylight hours and the prospect of another Spring. Wishing you a Happy Solstice
