    The winter solstice is celebrated by many different cultures. In ancient times, it was one of the largest celebrations! Cultures that still celebrate the winter solstice include native americans, celts, wiccans/pagans, atheist/agnostic, some cultures in Pakistan, Iran and Tibet, etc.

    It is a time to feast, celebrate the coming of spring, to reflect on death and re-birth, nature, etc.

    AND - it means the days will start getting longer!!! I hate it when it is dark when I go to work and dark when I leave work. That can be really depressing!

    I love this time of year. Sort of sleepy but sparkling with anticipation of the holidays and the new year.

    This Solstice heralds a whole new lifestyle for me!

    Wishing good health, joy, and peace to all.

    Greetings from Australia as I pick my first tomatoes and zuccinis. 37 degrees here tomorrow as people prepare for the Christmas feast..They were still selling the traditional puddings in the street this a.m.and many people will be doing the big roast dinner. I might make an ice cream plum pudding.
