How many of you celebrate the winter solstice? Hubby and I always do---just ourselves and the animals. Tonight we will have a special dinner and sit and talk about the last year and our plans for the new year. We love these wonderful short winter days---every one we know hates them---but so much beauty and peace in the long winter evenings. I hate the summer solstice---all that work until dark and the days are too long for an old geezer like me. I can picture all the summer chores now and I do dread it all---LOL> But by March my old bones will be sick of winter and ready for it all.

We celebrate as well Barbara. We have a special meal as well and we spend time together as a family. It is a day of celebration.

Big Hugs,

We celebrated the winter solstice tonight with a big Persian meal that I made. My husband is originally from Iran and the solstice is a big winter celebration for Persians. Dinner took me over 3 hours to make and fortunately it was delicious!

Happy solstice to all, may the light triumph over darkness tonight for you!

We also celebrate Solstice. It's nice to know others do, too. Happy Solstice everybody! We celebrated my getting the bandage off my eyes and DH cooked a fine Indian dinner (with boxes from Trader Joe's). Welcome the return of the Sun -- one day closer to Spring!

I love hearing about all of your celebrations of the Winter solstice. While I have never celebrated it per say, I always make a note of the date and time it occurs and put it in my journal. I think next year, I should do a celebration because it is a unique time of year and season and worthy of marking. I think it has always just gotten mixed up with Christmas stuff, but now with grown kids and pared down Christmas agenda, a Winter Solstice celebration would be a great idea. Thanks for sharing what you all did!!
