Dear, Darling and Much-loved Children of the Earth,...
Happy Winter Solstice! It's time to celebrate the birth of the Sun!
Just when it seemed nights would continue to lengthen, The Wheel of the Year turns and we find ourselves facing... more Light!
We may not notice it at first--we may assume that the nights are just going to get longer as we head into the "dead of winter". But the opposite is true. The day after Solstice, our day is minutes longer and keeps lengthening till we get to Mid-Summer.
