Tis' the Night of Winter Solstice/Yule
Time & Location
About the Event
In the old days people didn’t gather indoors just for good cheer; they did so because nature, so green and welcoming in the warm times had become cold, dark and terrifying. It became tradition to hold loud, cheery celebrations at this time of year. Our ancestors celebrated with food and drink, sang songs and told stories before enormous fires. For people of nearly any religious background, the time of the Winter Solstice is a time when we gather with family and loved ones and celebrate the return of light, acknowledging that all beginnings emerge from darkness. At the Winter Solstice we reach the depth of that darkness with the longest night of the year. Darkness has reached its peak.
In this event, we will talk about the tradition of the turning of the Wheel of the Year, set our intentions for what we wish to leave behind and what we wish to embrace for 2021. Come ready to participate and enjoy each others company.
