Celebrate the Winter Solstice

If there’s not enough for you to celebrate this time of year, why not add the Winter Solstice to the list?

Winter Solstice

The Winter Solstice marks the time of year that the North Pole is farthest away from the sun, resulting in a shorter and darker day. It’s the official start of winter. From this day until June, the Summer Solstice, days become longer. Yes, that means little by little more daylight. So why not celebrate it?

If you find yourself in a city where the sun is shining, get out of the four walls and enjoy it. Or, light a candle to represent the lighter days to come.

May this Winter Solstice bring you love, light, joy and peace!

    Forget the Mayans and the talk that today will be the end of the world.

    Celebrate the shortest and darkest day of the year instead. Here are some ideas:
    ~ Enjoy an evening of meditation
    ~ Watch an extremely funny movie
    ~ Instead of a warm and toasty adult beverage, try one you would normally drink during the longer days of summer. My favorites include mojitos, bellinis, or margaritas.
    ~ Take this evening and plan your summer vacation. Or, consider the number of places you would like to visit and researching them. My favorite site is concierge.com.

    May this Winter Solstice bring you love, light, joy and peace.
