Winter Solstice: The Longest Night

 

Today is the shortest day of the year. Each day that follows will bring more light into our lives.

Seemingly, we’re headed into the “dark” half of the year when the weather is cold and we prefer to stay inside. Sledding and building snow forts are fun but it’s a joy to step into our warm home and curl up with a cup of tea or hot chocolate. We watch more movies this time of year, snuggled on the couch with caramel popcorn.

The first day of winter is officially here. Yet we focus on the warmth and light that the solstice brings. We burn candles and celebrate the return of the sun because, gradually, the darkness is leaving.

We think about the darkness we have created or let into our lives. It’s a wonderful time of year to reflect and rid ourselves of negativity, allowing positive light in.

Let the light in.
