I love the Winter Solstice! It is my equivalent to the New Year. The Northern Hemisphere has reached it's furthest tilt away from the sun. From this point, until the Summer Solstice, the days will increasingly become longer, and as still as the world seems at this very moment, life will soon begin to stir, grow, and bustle.
The Solstice is a time to pause and find peace in all the beauty of the winter stillness, the ice crystals, the morning fogs, and the small splashes of color that remain. And after pausing in the wintry peace....time to gather indoors, snuggle with the loved ones, warm the house with an oven full of goodies, love and be loved.
Wishing you all a very Happy Holiday season, and hoping you find peace, joy, and love in all the holidays you celebrate!
