This is the shortest day and longest night. It is the day when our ancestors believed the Great Wheel of the Year paused, just for a moment.
They waited for the return of the Sun and celebrated this moment of transformation.
The Solstice is a special time for gatherings of family and friends but it is also the time to stop and reflect. Taking time to think about all that has happened over the last year and then... Look forward to the coming year knowing that the days will lengthen and warmth will come again.
