Winter Solstice is December 21st each year and is one of the oldest celebrated holidays. It marks the first official day of winter and is the shortest day of the year.

As we welcome back the Sun God and his light, I wish that light to shine brightly upon you, may you be surrounded in the warm loving arms of The Divine, and feel their presence supporting you in your quest for new. Today is the Winter Solstice! It is the shortest day of the year and the longest night. Yuletide Blessings to You and Yours!
