On the eve of the darkest day of the year, it time once again to celebrate Winter Solstice.
Give thanks for the year's precious moments, victories and challenges which make this life so poignant,
Let go of old habits, grievances, and stories (you can even write them on slips of paper and burn them),
Light candles to banish the darkness,
Bring home white flowers to place with the greenery,
Feast on food which nourishes both body and soul,
Turn your heart toward the future,
and ask for light and love to shine on you in abundance.
In this time of crazy holiday expectations, this special day can refresh and renew your heart and soul.
