    Our family always celebrated Solstice and Christmas growing up. As I got passed the gift are the most important thing stage of childhood I found that the Winter Solstice brought much more meaning than Christmas for myself. Turns out Winter Solstice is the root of Christmas from the Yule to the story of Christ. Once a person looks at history it makes sense that the story of Jesus coincides with pagan rituals and celebrations. Easter( Eostre) is another one, I prefer colored eggs over rabbit blood in the fields but the idea remains the same.

    Happy Solstice!

    Hopefully the next year will bring new life and healthy harvest provided by the source.
