May you find peace in the promise of the solstice night, that each day forward is blessed with more light. That the cycle of nature, unbroken and true, brings faith to your soul and well-being to you. Rejoice in the darkness, in the silence find rest, and may the day that follow be abundantly blessed.
About Winter Solstice
The winter solstice is an astronomical event that occurs annually in the Northern Hemisphere around December 21st or 22nd and in the Southern Hemisphere around June 21st or 22nd. It marks the shortest day and longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and the longest day and shortest night in the Southern Hemisphere.
During the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, the North Pole is tilted farthest away from the sun, resulting in the sun's lowest elevation in the sky and the least amount of daylight. After the winter solstice, the days gradually start getting longer as the Earth continues its orbit around the sun.
Cultures and civilizations throughout history have often celebrated the winter solstice with festivals, rituals, and traditions. For example, the ancient Romans celebrated Saturnalia, while various cultures have associated the solstice with the rebirth of the sun or the triumph of light over darkness. In modern times, some people celebrate the winter solstice as a time of reflection, renewal, and the return of longer days.
