winter solstice 2016




















The shortest day of the year has arrived, so it's time to light the candles and get the logs in!
In the old days before central heating and fridges, people would be celebrating the fact they and their animals, had survived through the deepest depths of winter and the days would now be getting warmer.
I think there is lots to celebrate in this day and age too. What I love about it, is that everyone is included in the solstice celebrations...we are all animals and we all need the warmth of the sun to stay alive and that is that! Something to join us all together like glue? I hope so xx

P.S. I wrote a little bit about my thoughts on this HERE too, if you haven't already seen it 😊
